Game Preview: Mets At Reds [Game 2] April 8, 2009

Cincinnati RedsNew York Mets (1-0 Road: 1-0) vs. Cincinnati Reds (0-1 Home: 0-1) 7:10 pm

Mike Pelfrey (0-0 0.00) vs. Edinson Volquez (0-0 0.00)


What to watch: The Mets face stiff competition in Volquez, who came over from the Texas Rangers last season in the Josh Hamilton trade and quickly established himself as a front-line starter. He was 17-6 with a 3.21 ERA. He had 206 K’s in 196 innings against only 93 walks. The Mets knocked him around in his one start against them last season. He pitched 5 innings and gave up 4 runs on 8 hits and 3 walks.

Pelfrey pitched two games against the Reds last season going 0-1 with a 4.85 ERA. He also had somewhat of a breakout year but not even close to what Volquez did for the Reds.

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.

  1. I am overly excited about this game. Volquez is a tremendous talent and I love watching him pitch. Pelfrey needs to prove that he is meant to be at the top of the rotation…

    Will we see Sheff today?
