Preview: Giants at Mets Aug. 17, 2009

giants logoSan Francisco Giants (63-54 Road: 24-34) at New York Mets (55-62 Home: 32-26) 7:10pm

Joe Martinez (2-1 6.00) vs. Livan Hernandez (7-7 5.28)


What to watch: The Giants are trying to split the four game series with a win today. Martinez got hit pretty hard in a 9-1 loss to the Dodgers in his last start giving up 3 earned runs in 4.1 innings. Hernandez is hanging onto his spot in the rotation by a string. His last two starts have been exceedingly bad giving up 12 earned runs in 9 innings. Another bad start today and he can kiss his job goodbye.

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.
