Series Preview: Mets vs. Phillies

The Mets’ second-place position in the standings was short — maybe 30 hours or so — but it was enjoyable. And the team still is only a game out of first, despite falling to third place as a result of the Braves’ 2-1 win over the Brewers on Monday. Optimism is high after the first three games of the season: Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes are healthy, the team is hitting, the team is pitching, the defense has been nearly flawless. It’s good times all around for Mets fans.

And just when we were starting to ride a smidgen of momentum, here come the Philliies.

Inside Look: Phillies

One of the benefits of being in the ESPN SweetSpot Network is that I’m able to pick the brains of other bloggers who cover opposing teams on a daily basis. With the Mets facing their first big test of the season, I called on Bill Baer of Crashburn Alley to give us the scoop on the Philadelphia Phillies.
