Game Preview: Mets at Braves [Game 90] July 18, 2009

braves logoNew York Mets (42-47 Road: 17-27)  at Atlanta Braves (45-45 Home: 23-21) 4 :10 pm

Johan Santana (10-7 3.09) vs. Kenshin Kawakami (5-6 4.26)


What to watch: As usual, Santana has to stop the bleeding with a great start not a good one. It seems like the Mets have been putting him in this position for a year and a half now. He was lights out against the Reds over 7 innings in his last start. We’ll see if he can do it again today. Gary Sheffield is out after leaving the game with leg cramps last night. He may be able to pinch hit today. Kawakami has been pitching well and hasn’t lost a decision since May 27. So this won’t be an easy task today.

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.
