st_louis_cardinals_logoSt. Louis Cardinals (40-32 Road: 19-16) at New York Mets (35-34 Home: 20-14)   7:10 pm

Brad Thompson (2-2 3.89) vs. Fernando Nieve (2-0 1.84)

TV: SNY  Radio:  WFAN

What to watch: I’ll be at the game again tonight so you can follow my posts at Twitter. Thompson was working out of the bullpen earlier this season but he’s made four starts recently and hasn’t done too badly. The Cardinals have won three of the games that he started. He’s going up against David Wright and the Mets Triple-A all stars tonight so he has a good chance of continuing his success in the rotation. Nieve is hoping to continue his Cinderella performance with the Mets. If he has another good start, it could move Tim Redding to the bullpen when John Maine comes back from the disabled list.

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.
