TV: SNY Radio: WFAN
What to watch: The Mets and D-Backs start up a three game series tonight in the desert. The D-Backs just got swept in San Diego and have lost 5 of their last 6 games. They’re having just an awful season. Kennedy has been okay this season but the team has lost 4 of the last 5 games he started. Pelfrey is finally starting after missing his turn in the rotation because of a stiff neck. The Mets have lost the last 2 games he started and he’s really in a bad part of the season after a terrific start.
