Preview: Marlins at Mets May 16, 2011

Florida Marlins (23-16) at New York Mets (19-21) 7:10pm

Josh Johnson (3-1 1.63) vs. Mike Pelfrey (3-3 5.74)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: Of course, the concern with this game is that the Mets can’t compete against Johnson. He’s one of the best, if not the best, pitchers in baseball and he already beat the Mets on opening day this year. But the Marlins have lost two of the last three games that he started.

Pelfrey finally seems to have gotten it together and won the last the two games he started. I’m just worried that going against Johnson is the kind of game that Pelfrey shrinks from. He got roughed up on opening day when he faced Johnson and Pelfrey is more of a front runner than a mountain climber.

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.
