Game Preview: Mets at Phillies [Game 81] July 5, 2009

Johan Santana (9-6 3.34) vs. Joe Blanton (4-4 5.08)

TV: WPIX  Radio:  WFAN

What to watch: The Mets need this one to avoid the sweep in Philly before coming home to face the Dodgers. Santana has lost three of his last four decisions, and today would be an excellent opportunity for him to turn things around. Blanton hasn’t pitched that badly for the Phils but he hasn’t won a game since June 1. The Phillies have lost the five games that Blanton started. Hopefully, this lines up as a win for the Mets.

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.
