Game Preview: Rays at Mets [Game 66] June 20, 2009

Rays logoTampa Bay Rays (35-34 Road: 14-22) at New York Mets (34-31 Home: 19-11)   4:10 pm

James Shields (5-5 3.52) vs. Johan Santana (8-4 3.29)

TV: FOX  Radio:  WFAN

What to watch: Fox Sports gets a good pitching match-up for this nationally televised game. Hopefully, the rain will hold out for long enough to get the game in. Shields has lost his last three road starts and is pitching to a 4.15 ERA on the road. Shields, like Santana, is a changeup pitcher and told the Tampa Tribune this week that he’s been looking forward to going up against Santana. The Mets are trying to get Santana back on track today. He’s been on a rough stretch for about a month now.

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.
