On Deck: Phillies-Mets, April 9, 2008

Philadelphia Phillies (4-4) at New York Mets (2-4) 7:10pm TV: SNY, ESPN2 Radio: WFAN

Kyle Kendrick (1-0) vs. Mike Pelfrey (0-0)

What to watch: Although it’s early in the season, the Mets really do need a win to take this three game series from the Phillies. They don’t want to lose two series in a row so early to division rivals. Mike Pelfrey had a very rough spring and is only pitching by default, due to injury to El Duque. He needs to impress or he might not get another start.
