Pre-Game: Mets at Padres Aug. 9, 2009

PadresNewLogoNew York Mets (51-59 Road: 29-28) at San Diego Padres (47-65 Home: 30-29) 4:05pm

Johan Santana (12-8 3.10) vs. Tim Stauffer (1-3 3.12)


What to watch: The Mets are trying to avoid the dreaded four game sweep to a last place team today. They’ll rely again on Santana to get a win when nobody else seems to be able to. He gave up 5 runs over 8 innings in his last start, a no decision. Stauffer has made five starts over the last month for the Padres and hasn’t allowed more than 3 runs in any of them.

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.
