Game Preview: Marlins at Mets [Game 48] May 30, 2009

marlins-logo1Florida Marlins (22-27 Road: 13-13) at New York Mets (27-20 Home: 16-8) 1:10 pm

Josh Johnson (3-1 2.67) vs. Tim Redding (0-1 6.75)


What to watch: The Mets go for their fifth straight win today with a lineup filled with backup players. Fernando Tatis is starting at third for David Wright and batting cleanup. That’s too bad for everyone going to the game today. Johnson is one of the best pitchers in baseball right now. He hasn’t had a really bad game since April 18.

  1. Today’s lineup may be the weakest that the Met’s have put together in 30 years!
    F Martinez
    R Martinez


    1. Manuel really cleaned out the bench for yesterday’s lineup. And Beltran had to leave with a stomach virus. I felt like I was watching the Buffalo Bisons playing against the Marlins.


  2. My first and only trip to Citi Field. What a disgrace! I feel robbed of my money for this game. Omar, can you say refund???


    1. Bill, I’m with you on that. The lineup Saturday was one of the worst in recent memory. I don’t really understand why Jerry Manuel sat David Wright when Sheffield and Castillo were already getting the day off for rest. It reminded me of some Willie Randolph lineups when he would rest everyone on the same day. I’d like to see Manuel mix it up a bit so regulars are rested on different days. That’s not only better for the fans, but better for the chances of the Mets winning games in my opinion.
