On Deck: July 5- Mets At Phillies (Game 2)

New York Mets (42-44 Road: 20-26) at Philadelphia Phillies (48-39 Home: 23-18) 7:05pm

John Maine (8-6 3.86) vs. Jamie Moyer (7-6 4.13)

TV: SNY  Radio: WFAN

What to watch: After last night’s abysmal loss, the Mets absolutely need to win this one. Maine was really bad in his last start in St. Louis and said his arm felt dead. It would be a huge problem for the Mets if he struggled again tonight. Moyer has lost his last three starts despite not pitching too badly. He’s even gone six innings or more in six of his last ten starts. Not bad for a 45 year old who was drafted in the sixth round of the 1984 draft.

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.
