2-unit Play Take #963 New York Mets over Philadelphia Phillies (7:05pm EST) Today's game between the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies probably won't be pretty. Neither of these teams has much punch in their lineup and neither starting pitcher has sparkled this season. Bartolo Colon has excellent control but his pitches in the zone have been hit hard this season after switching to the National League. He has a 4.73 ERA, but his peripheral statistics point to an ERA that should be at least a run lower. Roberto Hernandez checks in at 2-2 with a 3.76 ERA, but he' s been prone to the long ball and has had problems making it deep into games. This Phillies team seems to be teetering on the brink of disaster right now. They are in last place in the NL East and most of the veterans are more worried about where they will be traded at the deadline. GM Ruben Amaro Jr. needs to start rebuilding, so it's just a matter of time. The Mets are still a year or two away from being competitive, but they're young and hungry and are just a better overall team right now. Take the Mets here today.
