Game Preview: Yankees at Mets [Game 72] June 26, 2009

Yankees LogoNew York Yankees (40-32 Road: 19-18) at New York Mets (37-34 Home: 22-14)   7:10 pm

CC Sabathia (69-4 3.71) vs. Mike Pelfrey (5-2 4.74)


What to watch: The Yankees come to Citi Field having won four of their last six games against the Marlins and Braves. Sabathia left his last start in Florida after 1.1 innings after feeling a bicep problem. But the Yanks are running him out there again tonight. We’ll see if that’s a wise decision. Pelfrey’s been up and down, but the bottom line is that the Mets have lost three of the last four games that Pelfrey started. He hasn’t shown the kind of growth that we would have expected from him. It’s time for him to kick it up a notch. Gary Sheffield should be available to play the field tonight after having a cortisone shot in his knee on Wednesday.

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.
