Preview: Mets at Phillies August 7, 2010

New York Mets (54-55) at Philadelphia Phillies (61-48) 7:05 pm

Johan Santana (8-6 3.20) vs Cole Hamels (7-7 3.56)


What to watch: It’s only August, but games like this are starting to be “must-win” games for the Mets or their season will be finished soon. The Phillies have won the last five games that Hamels started but he’s been hit at times giving up 7 runs over his last two starts. The Mets have lost the last two games Santana started. He got rocked by the Cards for 7 runs then gave up 4 to the Braves in losses.

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.
