    Well, nice Cinderella Story.
    His wife had some tears of joy right after the anounce said s.th. like "Tonights winning pitcher New York Mets # 27 Nelson Figueroa". Just nice to see that.

    He won't pitch like that all season long, but who cares right now
    Agreed! It was great to see him pitch so well.. Lifelong Met fan and now getting his 1st win as a Met!

    "No matter how well he pitches, his repoirtoire gives him no chance of averaging a strikeout per inning for a sustained period of time"

    Agreed. He's a sinkerball type pitcher. However, he likely could at the very least maintain a 5.0 K/9 rate (check out his stats, both Major and Minor League), which makes him independent of his fielders. I do think he's good as a swingman or long guy, though.

    I think that if Willie and The Jacket can get six innings, 2 runs, and 6 strikeouts out of Figgy every time he pitches, or average that for 5-6 starts, I'd say that Pelf is the pithcer that goes back to the Big Easy when Pedro comes back from the DL. If Figgy averages those numbers, then Omar just found himself a #4, not a #5. It'll also take one pitching slot out of the "need a replacement for" column, at the end of the year.

    Every championship team has a good mix of veterans, kids and 1 or 2 players that emerge from the dead and give the WS game announcers a chance to report their remarkable story. Figueroa, and Pagan too, look like they could be our 'special stories' this season.

    He'd certainly make a solid reliever if someone went down. The fact that he exclusively pitches out the stretch helps him a bit.

    I think he is a similar situation to Pagan. It looks like they caught lightning in a bottle with them and they should get all they can. However, expectations have to be tempered, as I doubt either one can keep it up for an extended time.

    That said, great job tonight and hopefully he can pitch anywhere near this well in the future:gt

    Figueroa's start

    Figueroa looked good. Perfect game through 4th, 2 runs in 5th, only walked 2 2 hits, and 6 strikeouts.
