On Deck- July 22- Phillies at Mets Game 1

Philadelphia Phillies (53-46 Road: 26-23) at New York Mets (53-46 Home: 28-18) 7:10pm

Joe Blanton (5-12 4.96) vs. Johan Santana (8-7 3.10)


What to watch: The Phils and Mets start a three game series tonight with identical 53-46 records. Blanton is making his debut for the Phils tonight against Santana. I’m sure he’ll be geeked up to show what he can do for the Phillies. Santana got bombed in Cincy five days ago for five runs in four innings. I’m sure he’ll be looking to turn that around quickly. Billy Wagner may be available but I’m sure that Jerry Manuel will only use him if absolutely necessary.

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.
