Game Preview: Cardinals at Mets [Game 106] August 4, 2009

st_louis_cardinals_logoSt. Louis Cardinals (58-50 Road: 27-27) at New York Mets (50-55 Home: 29-24) 7:10pm

Joel Pineiro (9-9 2.84) vs. Johan Santana (12-8 2.96)


What to watch: The Mets and Cardinals start a two-game series tonight at Citi Field. At least Santana is pitching tonight. That’s really the only reason to watch this Mets team right now. Pineiro threw a two-hit complete game shutout against the Mets in New York on June 23. And he went 8 innings giving up 2 runs for a win in St. Louis against them on April 22. He hasn’t given up more than 3 runs in a game since May. Santana pitched a good game in his last start against Colorado going 7 shutout innings and only giving up 4 hits.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.

  1. I’m afraid that the mediocre play by the Met’s has finally caught up with Johan. He looks like he has a dead arm out there tonight. Lot’s of grooved pitchers, a lack of velocity and little to no movement.

    1. Santana looked pretty good with the bat though. K-Rod is the one that killed them tonight. And Luis Castillo might be gone for a while. He could be their MVP this year. Who would’ve ever thought that?

  2. And K-Rod comes in and blows it. The ‘pen can’t even cut Johan a break when he is off his game.
    Truly ‘mazin.
