Phillies @ Mets Gameday Preview


Tonight should be an interesting night for Dice K.  When the Mets picked him up for depth purposes I am not sure they ever realized how badly they would need that depth.  Luckily, Niese's strong performance last night provided the Mets with a rested pen that could get the call quickly. 

As for the Mets offense, they have had above average success against Hamels in the past.  However, lead by an offense now Byrd and Buckless, it could be an even greater challenge for a team who has averaged only a little over 3 runs per game in August.
