Game Preview: Mets at Yankees [Game 61] June 14, 2009

Yankees LogoNew York Mets (32-28 Road: 14-17)  at New York Yankees (35-27 Home: 19-12) 1:05 pm

Johan Santana (8-3 2.39) vs. A.J. Burnett (4-3 4.89)


What to watch: The Mets and Yankees play the rubber game of the series today and you have to give the edge to the Mets in the final game with Santana. Burnett got rocked for 5 runs in 2.2 innings in his last start in Boston. So far, he’s been somewhat of a disappointment since signing with the Yankees as a free agent. Santana has been on a bit of a down-tick for him lately as well. He’s allowed at least 3 earned runs in his last five starts. I have a feeling that he’s going to turn up the intensity for the Yankees today though.

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.
