Gameday Open Thread: May 31, 2010 @ San Diego

The Mets (26-25) take on the Padres (30-20) tonight in San Deigo. Hisanori Takahashi (4-1, 4.23) looks to continue his recent success against Kevin Correia (4-4, 4.03).

Takahashi has been excellent in his only starts of the season – allowing five hits in six scoreless innings against both the Yankees and Phillies. He should find his job a bit easier tonight against a relatively weak Padres lineup in spacious Petco Park.

Correia has been solid for San Diego so far this season, especially in Petco. While pitching at home, he has allowed more than 3 earned runs only once. That rough start came after a 12-day layoff, following the untimely death of his brother. Last season, Correia was 4-6 at home with a 3.68 ERA, while holding opposing batters to a .236 BA.

Here is the lineup, as per the Mets PR team:

Jose Reyes- SS
Alex Cora – 2B
Jason Bay – LF
Ike Davis – 1B
David Wright – 3B
Angel Pagan – CF
Rod Barajas – C
Jeff Francoeur – RF
Hisanori Takahashi – LHP

First pitch at 10:05pm Eastern.

Note: I won’t be around much (if at all) tonight – I’ll be watching the game from various locations that aren’t near a computer. But rumor has it that Joe Janish will be back in the USA at some point today or tonight. So check back and maybe he’ll be holding court in the comments section. And if I’m wrong and he isn’t back today, you’ll have to deal with my nonsense again tomorrow. I feel so sorry for you.

And for your viewing pleasure, I submit a funny video from some random Little League game from several years ago in God Knows Where, USA:
