Pre-Game: Mets at Pirates [Game 52] June 4, 2009

New York Mets (28-23 Road: 11-14) at Pittsburgh Pirates (24-28 Home: 14-11) 12:35 pm

Mike Pelfrey (4-1 3.88) vs. Ross Ohlendorf (5-5 4.45)

TV: SNY  Radio:  WFAN

What to watch: The Mets try to salvage something out of this rain-shortened series in Pittsburgh behind Pelfrey. He’s pitched five good starts in a row and should be able to keep it going against a weak Pirates lineup. Their lineup is even weaker after trading OF Nate McClouth to the Braves yesterday. Ohlendorf has lost his last two starts and given up at least four runs in his last three starts. The word is that Carlos Beltran is finally ready to play.

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.
