One pitch. A pitch that zigged when it should have zagged, as it should have, as it had to, morphing into a microcosm of A.J. Burnett’s career and framing the unbending illogic of his bosses.

Mike Pelfrey won his 15th game of the season this past Thursday against the Pirates. Pelfrey is the 10th right-handed pitcher in Mets history to record 15 or more wins in a year.
