On Deck- August 12- Mets at Nationals [Game 1]

New York Mets (62-55 Home: 36-22) at Washington Nationals (44-75 Home: 23-33) 7:10pm

Johan Santana (9-7 2.85) vs. Odalis Perez (5-8 4.10)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: Honestly, I don’t know how the Mets can recover from their devastating loss yesterday. I guess playing the worst team in baseball for three games could help. I’ve written this before over the last few weeks but I’ll say it again, the Mets need Santana to go nine innings himself if they expect to win this one. You can’t trust anyone in the bullpen right 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.
