New York Mets (10-8) at Chicago Cubs (13-6) 2:20pm

Nelson Figueroa (1-0) vs. Ted Lilly (0-3)


What to watch: The Mets really need to take this game. Even though it’s a short two game series they don’t want to get swept in Chicago. Getting out of town with a split would be just fine. Figueroa has looked pretty good for a guy off the street and out of U.S. baseball recently. Ted Lilly has been awful this season. Hopefully, that’s a recipe for a Mets win.

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.
