If you watched the Mets game last night or have seen Mike Pelfrey pitch at any point in time this season than you must certainly have noticed him playing with something in his mouth. Not gum nor chewing tobacco like normal baseball players. Rather Pelfrey chews and plays with a mouth guard throughout the game. I don't know if I've ever seen another pitcher wear a mouth guard before. Nevermind pitch with it out of their mouth like below. It just seems weird.
