Game Preview: Nationals at Mets [Game 17] April 25, 2009

Washington Nationals logoWashington Nationals (3-12 Road: 0-7) at New York Mets (7-9 Home: 4-3)  1:10 pm

Daniel Cabrera (0-1 4.50) vs. Mike Pelfrey (1-0 8.10)


What to watch: Pelfrey is making his first start in 12 days after missing a turn in the rotation because of forearm tendinitis. He says that he feels fine and is ready to go. Cabrera hasn’t pitched terribly for the Nationals but he walks too many hitters (8 walks and 6 strikeouts). He’s one of those curious pitchers that appears to have good stuff but gives up too many walks and gets hit harder than you would think.

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.
