Game Preview: Dodgers at Mets [Game 83] July 8, 2009

dodgers logoLos Angeles Dodgers (53-30 Road: 25-17) at New York Mets (39-43 Home: 22-18)  7:10 pm

Hiroki Kuroda (3-4 3.91) vs. Oliver Perez (1-2 9.97)


What to watch: The Mets try to avoid their fifth consecutive loss tonight. Perez is back from the DL/poor performance. He pitched okay in the minors in his rehab games. But who knows what to expect from him, really? The Dodgers are 4-4 in Kuroda’s start this year. He’s only pitched more than 6 innings twice in eight starts. Expect to be into the Dodgers bullpen during this one if the Mets can generate any offense for a change.

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.
