There is frustration, and then there is the scorched-earth kind of rage that Mike Pelfrey was feeling when he was lifted from Tuesday’s game after four terrible innings against the Rockies at Coors Field. The furious Pelfrey stormed into the clubhouse, where he switched his uniform for running gear, and then left the stadium. “I was so upset, I had to get outside,” Pelfrey said Wednesday afternoon. “I had to get some fresh air. I had to breathe.” Once he found himself standing in the middle of the parking lot, Pelfrey began running laps, each about 13 blocks long, as his teammates struggled through the late innings of an 8-3 loss to Colorado. — Newsday

It looks like someone lost his shit for a few innings. -TO
