Open Thread - Game 92: Mets vs. Padres (07/16/2007) on SNY


Tale of the tape:

Sosa Wells
ERA 3.92 4.31
FIP 4.30 4.28
K/9 5.32 5.16
BB/9 3.22 2.34
K/BB 1.65 2.20
HR/9 0.84 0.94
WHIP 1.21 1.46
GB/FB 0.92 1.02
BABIP .255 .327
eBABIP .311 .330

Que se dillio:

Jorge Sosa comes off the disabled list and, really, he couldn't have handpicked a better game to make his return. He gets to:

a) pitch in the fine weather climate of San Diego
b) bring his extreme flyball skills to a stadium where homeruns (and runs, in general) go to die
c) face a below-average offensive team

The Mets will oppose David "Tubby" Wells, who has had a nice season, largely buoyed by his dramatic home/road splits. His svelte 2.91 home ERA helps to mask his khazer-like 6.25 road ERA.
