Preview: Phillies at Mets Aug. 22, 2009

phillies logoPhiladelphia Phillies (69-50 Road: 37-21) at New York Mets (57-65 Home: 34-29) 7:10pm

J.A. Happ (9-2 2.66) vs. Tim Redding (1-4 6.53)


What to watch: Redding is making his first start back in the rotation since the Mets released Livan Hernandez. Redding was the obvious choice for the rotation because he’s been rocked in his last two relief outings, giving up 6 earned runs over 4 innings. On the other hand, Happ has been outstanding this year. He hasn’t allowed more than 2 runs in his last four starts including a complete game shutout of the Rockies on Aug. 5.

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.
