Amazing. Just when you think he's through, he comes through with something like this. You have to tip your hat to this guy.

That was a great performance by El Duque, who also proved to be a pest at the plate. One of his at-bats against Vargas was a 14-pitch battle. Duque kept fouling off pitch after pitch, much to the consternation of Vargas and the crowd. Good show.

If he can stay healthy, the Mets have a good shot at coming out of the NL.

I never thought he was capable of throwing a complete game again (age, works slow, throws a lot of pitches), great to see the highlights last night

I thought he did much better than most people thought last year.

His performances in the playoffs were simply awesome.

I've always liked him. Good to see that he's still capable of doing good things.

His performances in the playoffs were simply awesome.Well, to be fair, one was awesome, one was just surreal.

That's often the same thing for el duque.

I wish the Mets didn't trade for him so I could still hold on to the pipe dream of getting him for middle relief...

I was short a pitcher in my fantasy league and was going to pick him up to get me by for the day and didn't :angry:

If the Mets are smart, they'll keep him fresh for a pennant run.

I think that's a very smart trade the Mets did. They gave up some relief pitching, but I seriously doubt El Duque is done.

Unlike Vasquez, El Duque thrives in big games, and he doesn't complain like Vasquez used to. I didn't like the trade, but who knows, maybe in a few years if Vasquez is a gamer and there's 5 WS titles I'll realize that I was stupid.

Pulled another magic trick out of his hat.

(Come on, I'm sure that brought a smile to someone's face with a fond memory of Rooney/Farmer last fall.....)

Good stuff. Although I have a feeling if all things keep going the way they are for the Sox, our 4 for post-season would be Contreras, Burhele, Garcia, and Vasquez. Garland hasn't had it yet this season, whereas Vasquez boxes himself in then pitches like a god.

Pssst...the Mets are, arguably, the best team in the NL. And no offense to him, but he's not worth the liability even if he wasn't on a contender.
