On Deck: Friday May 16, 2008 Mets-Yankees

New York Mets (20-19) at New York Yankees (20-22) 7:05pm

Johan Santana (4-2) vs. Darrell Rasner (2-0)


What to watch: The good thing for the Mets is that the Yankees are struggling as badly as they are. Santana comes in once again to stop the bleeding. That’s become his job with the Mets. Rasner is an average pitcher but consistently throws strikes. So the Mets need to be ready to start hacking because Rasner doesn’t typically walk a lot of batters.
