After a nifty little three-game home stand, the Marlins find themselves in NYC. I just hope someone told the young guys to take the seven train to the stadium or we might be missing a few when the game starts.
Josh Johnson takes the hill for the Marlins. JJ looked good in his last start, which is promising. The concern is he normally pitches better at home and than on the road. And this year, Taxpayer Stadium has been no different. He has made one start this season at the Mets home and frankly, it was one to forget. But hopefully everything will be clicking tonight.
R.A. Dicky is the starter of choice for the Mets. Didn't he just pitch a game on television like a couple of days ago? Maybe not. Dicky is knuckleballer which normally isn't what you want facing the Marlins. However, the Marlins have had success against him in the past. Dickey has been lights out when pitching at home.
Ichthyomancy is good to go.
Best of Luck to You!
