New York Mets (10-9) at Washington Nationals (6-15) 7:10pm
Johan Santana (2-2) vs. Tim Redding (3-1)
TV: SNY Radio: WFAN
What to watch: This is why Santana gets the big bucks, to stop the bleeding. Coming off a short series sweep in Chicago, the Mets may find that playing the Nationals is the cure. They’re just a bad team, maybe the worst in baseball. They’re certainly a team that the Mets can beat up on and get “right” before heading home to face the Braves.
