The Mets have had a lot of angst this season already - just ask Willie Randolph. After his meeting with management, they seemed to be getting back on track, winning three straight. But the lost last night in the late innings. That loss dropped them below .500. This team remains motivated to keep winning and they are playing hard. We like them to bounce back today. Chad Billingsley has been pitching very well of late but his overall body of work is average. Mike Pelfrey has not been pitching well but at home this season he has been solid (3.60 ERA). The Dodgers get just 3.8 runs per game vs. RHP and their offense has produced only 2.9 runs per game over their last seven. They are just 4-11 this season vs. teams like the Mets that score 4.8+ runs per game. We'll back the home team here.
