Mets Games 142 and 143 vs. Phillies

The most important doubleheader of the season, for both the Mets and the Phillies, will be played today.

Game one starts at 2:15 pm and has wily veterans Pedro Martinez vs. Jamie Moyer. That game will be shown on SNY and will have interactive elements in lieu of commercials for the first five innings — including segments with Matt Cerrone.

Game two begins at 8 pm and will be shown on ESPN. Aces Johan Santana and Cole Hamels face each other.

Both games can be heard on WFAN as well as XM — game one on XM 179, game two on XM 183.

In addition, I’ll be tinkering around with posting game notes in a Twitter-like environment, and I strongly encourage you to join in and post your own notes. Visit to check it out — your MetsToday login/password should work (assuming I set things up correctly); send me a note if you can’t get in.

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
