Pedro is back but is this the time to back him, in his first start since April 1? The Mets bullpen is exhausted after Oliver Perez' one-inning disaster on Monday. Pedro is just 3-9 the past two seasons when the game total is under 9. Barry Zito boasts a terrible 1-8 record but he's been pitching very well of late. In his last five starts he has allowed no more than three runs. The Mets are 17-11 at home but just 11-17 on the road. They are 10-15 this season as a favorite of -125 to -175. The Giants are playing great right now winning five of their last seven, scoring 5.6 runs per game in the process. Not that we put a huge stake in it but it's interesting to note that home plate umpire Mike Dimuro has umped ten games thus far this season and nine of them have been won by the home team.
