    Saturday, 3:45 PM - Mike Pelfrey (R) vs Brandon Webb (R)
    Sunday, 4:10 PM - Johan Santana (L) vs Dan Haren (R)

    Mets Lineup for Tonight

    SS Jose Reyes (S)
    RF Ryan Church (L)
    3B David Wright (R)
    CF Carlos Beltran (S)
    LF Moises Alou (R)
    1B Carlos Delgado (L)

    Way to go Willie, you had me terrified you'd bump Church down to 7th.

    Big series, IMO.

    The D'Backs, the best team in the NL, with Webb and Haren going against us in this series.

    That lineup is awesome, about time Willie put Church in the 2 hole again.

    Let's take 2 out of 3!

    Owings isn't half bad either.

    Honestly IMO a 3-3 road trip would be a good thing.

    The Milledge trade as promised is paying great dividends so far.

    Let's just stay healthy for a while now and see what this line-up can do.

    Is it too late to make Citi Field an exact replica of Chase Field?

    Im not a VIP but if you go back and look at my posts, The milledge trAde was a good trade at the time and it loooks even better now. Schneider has been a better than advertised game caller, decent stick and good defensive. Church has been better than cou;ld be expected too and he gets some of the best jumps on balls that i have seen

    I can never figure Pelfrey out, the guy throws mid to high 90s...with a good sinker in a pitchers park...why isnt he dominating?

    Because he doesn't have a breaking pitch he can rely on.

    besides no breakin ball, he is a ***** so to say, he doesnt go after hitters. He will have the batter with 2 strikes and instead of attacking him he will nibble at the plate and hope the hitter swings at a ball. He needs to grow a set and pound the zone especially when he is up in the count


    And mark my words Milledge will NOT be a star. A solid player maybe, star not quite. In the end Gomez will end up being better of the two. At best i think milledge will be a faster version of what church is now.

    This shouldn't surprise you with young pitchers.

    sorry, it does.

    Pelfrey is college groomed so he should be more advanced a kid taken from HS. He has to attack hitters ESPECIALLY when he is up in the count. This dancin around the plate bull**** never works

    John Maine who is havin a so so year so far this year is makin a career out of goin after hitters. He doesnt have much as far as pitches go but his best attribute is willingness to go at the hitter and pound the zone

    Pelfrey: 5IP, 9H, 5 ER, 4 BB, and 1 SO.

    That's just not going to cut it. Pelfrey really needs to pound the zone and try and finish hitters.

    We need to send him to New Orleans to work on that.
