Mike Pelfrey is running out of rope, and maybe, out of time.
On Thursday, the Boston Red Sox slapped Pelfrey around in his second spring start in an 8-2 loss in Port St. Lucie. In three innings Pelfrey allowed three runs and four hits. He worked on his forkball, which failed to, well, fork. He worked on his sinker too. The only thing that sunk were the collective hearts of Mets fans.
