What To Watch

The Mets roll into Cincy for a three-game series this week. Perez starts things off for the Mets. He got into trouble in his last start against the Dodgers and couldn’t make it out of the fourth inning. Jerry Manuel clearly had a quick hook with him. Expect that to continue. Leake is a rookie that’s been pitching well for the Reds. They’ve won three of the four games he started this season.
