On Deck: Monday May 5, 2008 -Dodgers

New York Mets (16-13) at Los Angeles Dodgers (17-14) 10:10pm

Oliver Perez (2-2) vs. Chad Billingsley (1-4)


What to watch: Get ready for some late night baseball tonight and tomorrow night. The Mets go into LA riding high off a series win in Arizona. Oliver Perez really needs to rebound from his 1.2 inning start last Wednesday. That horrible start led to Billy Wagner sounding off about Perez and the state of the team. Perez is in a contract year too. So if he expects to get a long term contract next year, he needs to start pitching like he wants it.

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.
