I think today is the day that Johan Santana will be recognized as the soul provider for this team on the mound. As we remember, he struck out ten Nationals in his previous start and and the last time he faced the Marlins, he pitched near perfect ball in a duel with Josh Johnson. This afternoon, Citi Field will witness its best pitching matchup to date as the two square off again from Flushing.
Will this matchup become a rivalry? After all, the Mets and the Phillies quickly became rivals after words from Jimmy Rollins prior to the 2007 season- when the Mets blew it on the final day against these very same Fish. But back to Santana- Johnson.
I want to know what you guys think about these two pitchers facing eachother once again. Will it take a couple more solid pitcher's duels to make these two facing eachother must see TV?
