st_louis_cardinals_logoSt. Louis Cardinals (40-33 Road: 19-17) at New York Mets (36-34 Home: 21-14)   1:10 pm

Chris Carpenter (5-1 1.53) vs. Johan Santana (8-5 3.22)

TV: SNY  Radio:  WFAN

What to watch: This is another one of those premier pitching match-up’s that you get a few times during the regular season. Carpenter never seems to lose a beat when he misses extended time due to injuries and this season is another example of that. Santana hasn’t been his best over the last month and a half. I’d like to see him start to return to his early season form. The Mets need that badly with the Triple-A lineup that they’re running out there now. Gary Sheffield is likely available for emergencies today after having a cortisone shot in his knee yesterday.

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.
