Preview: Giants at Mets May 8, 2010

San Francisco Giants (17-11) at New York Mets (16-13)   1:10 pm

Todd Wellemeyer (1-3 5.55) vs Johan Santana (3-2 4.50)

TV: WPIX   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: Hopefully, the Mets can keep the momentum going this afternoon against the Giants after last night’s walk-off homer by Rod Barajas. This should be an interesting game for Santana. He was torched for 10 runs in 3.2 IP in his last start in Philly, his worst start as a Mets player and probably ever. If he doesn’t bounce back with a good start today, we need to hit the panic button that something is really wrong. Wellemeyer’s last start at home against Philly was excellent. He went 7 IP giving up 2 ER and got the win. After that he relived Jonathan Sanchez in Colorado and threw 3 IP of scoreless relief.

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.
