Preview: Mets at Nationals July 4, 2010

New York Mets (45-36) at Washington Nationals (36-46) 1:35 pm

Hisanori Takahashi (6-3 4.24) vs Craig Stammen (2-2 5.13)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets need this one to even the series at 2-2 before they come home to face the Reds this week. Takahashi was pathetic in his last start against the Marlins giving up 6 runs over 5.2 innings. I have no confidence in him as a starter. The Nats have lost three of the last four games that Stammen started. But his last two starts against the Braves and Reds were excellent. During those starts, he only gave up 3 runs over 14 innings.

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.
