This guy was a bit of a sleeper darling going into last year but pretty much imploded right away. He had a great year in 2005 and there seemed to be a lot to like.

After falling off the map completely, I see that he has resurfaced with the Mets and actually had a very strong game against Arizona (following up 5 very strong AAA starts to begin the season). What are the thoughts on this guy? Could we be looking at a bit of a comeback story? Does anybody have any opinions/projections for him? And is he in the rotation to stay?

He's in the rotation right now and is only NL-Only worthy right now.

No way would I have this guy on my team.

He's not in the rotation for good. When El Duque returns he probably goes to the pen/AAA. Although I guess there is the possibility he could take Pelfrey's job. He looked good against ARI but I'd like to see him again, against a different offense.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

With his atrocious WHIP, he was not a sleeper in the mind of reasonable person going into 2006. I would touch him now with a 10 foot pole.

Personally, I'm terrified that the Mets may have just made wine out of water again (wasn't that my Braves' MO just a few years back? :,-( ). He's always had good stuff but he's never been able to harness it. If someone has managed to flip that switch, he could be a very nice waiver pickup.

Don't start him yet, but definitely consider adding him.

This could, of course, just be the paranoid Braves fan in me. :-o

He'll likely get sent down when El Duque is back, unless Pelfrey struggles enough to warrant a demotion. Doubtful though, and El Duque has been pushed back a little but Sosa will likely just get 2 or 3 more starts.

Im definately gonna watch his start vs the Cubs on the 16th. I would strongly consider adding him with another stellar preformance. Seems worth the gamble.
