What to watch: The Astros just swept the Cardinals and have won five of their last seven games. Former Met Hampton has been hit hard in his last two starts and lost both games. Santana has pitched three excellent games in a row. As always, the Mets need him to stop the bleeding after losing a series to the Nationals.

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.
