Rubber Time!

The offense and the pitching showed up for either team the last two days.  The were on opposite days however and that's the reason for the two lob-sided victories.  The final game of this three game set takes place tonight when the ace, R.A. Dickey, takes the hill for New York.

It won't be easy for the Mets offense though as Philly is throwing out another left hander, Cole Hamels.  This is one of the biggest areas of concern for the Mets in the second half of the season.  There is a ton of left handed, potential power in the line-up.  However, from the right side, not so much.  Obviously there's David Wright, but then the next threat is Scott Hairston.  So yeah, there's some nerves.

Tonight should be more of a low scoring game, and as much as people should be focused on the righties vs Hamels, that won't be the case.  Dickey is on the mound.  The knuckleball is coming at ya, Philly.  See and hit it if you can.
