Pelfrey Gets Knocked, Carter Goes 3-5, As Mets Fall to Nats

The Mets lost to the Nationals today 7-5 (box score), after Mike Pelfrey gave up 5 earned runs, 4 homers, in 4 and 2/3 innings pitched. 

On the positive side Chris Carter went 3-5 in today's game raising his average to .444 this spring.  The only other person who hit today was Henry Blanco who went 2-3 with an RBI and a run.

At this point Carter's got to be getting serious consideration for the opening day roster.  His only other competition, Catalanotto (.100 avg) and Jacobs ( .174 avg) aren't even hitting close to what Carter  is (.444 avg) if you add their respective averages together.  Now that's as much a commentary on their poor starts as it is on Carter's hot start, but either way, COME ON.  Give the kid a break, what else does he have to do to get considered around here...

As for Pelfrey's putting up another poor start, I'm starting to wonder what most others are...Why didn't we upgrade our rotation again this off-season?
