Game Preview: Padres at Mets [Game 7] April 13, 2009

San Diego Padres logoSan Diego Padres (5-2 Road: 0-0) at New York Mets (3-3 Home: 0-0) 7:10 pm

Walter Silva (0-0 3.60) vs. Mike Pelfrey (1-0 7.20)


What to watch: We all know that the game is going to play second fiddle to the opening ceremonies of Citi Field tonight. But there is a game to play. Its going to be a cold one tonight so bundle up if you’re lucky enough to be going to the home opener. The Padres are Jake Peavey, Adrian Gonzalez, and a bunch of nobodies. They do come into town on a four game winning streak after sweeping the Giants. Silva pitched five innings of 2-run ball against the Dodgers in his first start. He’s a 32 year old getting his first taste of the major league game. Pelfrey got a win against the Reds in his first start even though he didn’t pitch particularly well. We need more from Pelfrey if the Mets are going to be contenders this season.

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.
