This afternoon (weather permitting) the Mets take on the Giants in game 3 of their 4 game set. ¬†Mike Pelfrey threw a real nice game yesterday, but was a victim of Frank Francisco and shoddy defense. ¬†Pelf‚Äôs 8 innings of 1 run ball, did not figure into the decision after Frankie Folding Chair couldn‚Äôt find the strike zone and then Ruben Tejada and Cpt. Kirk misplayed a flyball into short center. ¬†Luckily for the Mets, Buster Posey still had thoughts of his broken ankle in the back of his head, and he threw the back half of a double play, into left field. ¬†This allowed the Mets to score the winning run.
Today the 4th member of ¬†ZZ top, Dillon Gee ¬†(1-1 2.92 ERA) ¬†will be squaring off against ¬†Big Time Timmy Jam (0-2) and that awesome 10.54 ERA.
The game can be seen on WPIX11 and heard on WFAN.

Who‚Äôs Hot?‚Ä¶Buster Posey. Buster is hitting .458 in his last 6 games. But in typical Giants fashion, he only has 1 RBI in those 6 games.
Dillon Gee (1-1 2.92 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mets. ¬†In Gee‚Äôs last start against¬†the Braves he allowed just one earned run on four hits and a walk over seven solid frames. ¬†He really pushed through a shaky 7th inning to keep the Mets ahead.
Tim Lincecum (0-2 10.54 ERA) has been a total disaster so far this season. ¬†In his 3 starts so far this season, he has not gone beyond 6 innings in any of them, and has allowed 22 hits in only 13.2 innings pitched. ¬†Look for the 2nd perfect game in 2 days to be pitched today if the rain holds off‚Ä¶.
