Game Preview: Padres at Mets [Game 9] April 16, 2009

San Diego Padres logoSan Diego Padres (6-3 Road: 1-1) at New York Mets (4-4 Home: 1-1) 7:10 pm

Jake Peavey (1-1 3.52) vs. John Maine (0-0 3.60)


What to watch: Maine had a pretty good game in his first start against the Marlins, going 5 innings and giving up 2 runs. With Mike Pelfrey feeling the effects of tendinitis, the Mets need Maine and the other starters to make sure they pick up the slack. The Mets need to take the rubber game of the series tonight against a weaker team from the west coast. This is the kind of series that the Mets need to win this season if they expect to be contenders.

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’ve noticed that the seats behind home plate have been empty in every game at Citi Field so far. I wonder if that’s because they’re so expensive that the Mets can’t sell them or if the big-wigs that bought them spend the game in the restaurant making business deals.
