Seattle Bunion Newsletter, Issue #3

Who is Mike Pelfrey and what in the name of El Duque does he have to do with Michelle's bunion?

Simple, my friends. In a baseball Opening Day edition of the SBN, we come with news that Mike Pelfrey has been named the fifth starter in the New York Mets' pitching rotation, beating out Orlando Hernandez. And why? Because Hernandez, better known as El Duque, needs time on the disabled list to deal with guess what foot malady.

As the New York Times put it today:

Pelfrey said he understood that Hernández would be joining the rotation at some point, barring more trouble with his painful left foot bunion. Hernández lowered his signature high leg kick to help with the pain but found out that it has hurt his results. In his last game, he returned to a higher leg kick and held Baltimore to a run and four hits in five innings.
