On Deck: May 31- Dodgers At Mets

Los Angeles Dodgers (27-27) at New York Mets (26-27)  3:55pm

Chad Billingsley (4-6) vs. Mike Pelfrey (2-6)

TV: Fox            Radio: WFAN

What to watch: With Pedro Martinez coming back to the roster on Tuesday, some decisions will have to be made regarding the starting pitching. Mike Pelfrey hasn’t pitched well at all since his no-hit bid two weeks ago. That’s starting to look more like a fluke performance than a view of what he could be in the future. Pelfrey needs to step up his game today if he wants to avoid a trip back to the minors. Frankly, his poor performances have been hurting the team.

On Deck: Monday May 5, 2008 -Dodgers

New York Mets (16-13) at Los Angeles Dodgers (17-14) 10:10pm

Oliver Perez (2-2) vs. Chad Billingsley (1-4)


What to watch: Get ready for some late night baseball tonight and tomorrow night. The Mets go into LA riding high off a series win in Arizona. Oliver Perez really needs to rebound from his 1.2 inning start last Wednesday. That horrible start led to Billy Wagner sounding off about Perez and the state of the team. Perez is in a contract year too. So if he expects to get a long term contract next year, he needs to start pitching like he wants it.
