Ubaldo Jimenez (7-9 3.85) vs. Oliver Perez (2-3 7.68)


What to watch: The Rockies come into town hot, going 7-3 in their last 10 games and leading the wild card race by 2 games over the Giants. Jimenez is a very good pitcher, especially away from Coors Field. He’s 3-5 with a 3.73 ERA and .224 BAA on the road this year. Perez took a loss to the Nationals in his last start giving up 4 runs in 6 innings. As usual, he needs to cut down on the walks. He’s walked 17 in 17 innings since coming off the disabled list.

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.
