Preview: Phillies at Mets Aug. 23, 2009

phillies logoPhiladelphia Phillies (70-50 Road: 38-21) at New York Mets (57-66 Home: 34-30) 1:10pm

Pedro Martinez (1-0 4.50) vs. Oliver Perez (3-3 6.06)


What to watch: Pedro returns! It’s kind of sad to see a formerly-great pitcher hanging onto his career by a thread, but Pedro is back. You can bet that he’ll be highly motivated today against the downtrodden Mets. The Mets are 5-3 in the games that Perez has started since he came off the DL. He wasn’t great in his last start against the Braves giving up 4 earned runs in 5 innings but he hasn’t lost a decision since July 21.

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.
