Game Preview: Mets at Phillies [Game 24] May 3, 2009

Phillies logoNew York Mets (10-13 Road: 4-7) at Philadelphia Phillies (12-10 Home: 6-8) 1:35 pm

John Maine (1-2 5.40) vs. Joe Blanton (0-2 8.41)


Update (12:21 pm): The game has been rained out and will be re-scheduled at a later date.

What to watch:  The Mets and Phils kick off the rubber game of the series this afternoon on WPIX in New York. Blanton’s been having some serious problems this season, while Maine was very strong in his last start against the Marlins. We’ll see if Carlos Delgado feels healthy enough to start today after pinch hitting yesterday. Fernando Tatis has been filling in at first base very capably in his absence.

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.
