NFT: Mets @ Phillies: Game 3 – Quintana vs. Wheeler - 4:05 pm EDT

Optimus-NY : 9/23/2023 3:14 pm

Starting Lineups for both clubs today.

Probable Starting Pitcher Matchups for today & tomorrow in Philly.
-The Mets were officially eliminated from the playoff race after yesterday’s loss.
-Today’s game is a day game on SNY and tomorrow is a day game on WPIX. The big caveat is the weather. It’s a mess in Philly. Things will be like that there through Monday. Both the Mets and the Phillies are off that day FWIW, but it’ll still be rainy then too. Click HERE to check out the Hourly AccuWeather Report for Citizens Bank Park.
-The Mets have the 8th worst record in baseball. 3.5 games separate them from the Nats, who have the 6th worst record in MLB.

-The Nats can’t pick higher than 10th in the draft though, so the Mets will most likely pick ahead of them the way things are going.
-Click HERE to take a look at Tankathon's 2024 MLB Draft Lottery Simulator.
-The Mets are in 4th place in the NL East with 8 games to go in the season. Their record is 71-83. Click HERE to see the divisional standings throughout MLB.

-If Mauricio plays in the Mets’ final 8 games, he'd be on pace to have 100 at-bats with the big club this season, which is 30 at-bats shy of the threshold required to keep him eligible for next season's ROY award, thereby potentially helping the Mets with the PPI (Prospect Promotion Incentive).
-Click HERE to see his baseball reference page. He’s got a BA of .261 & an OPS of .659.
-The Mets are going up against a former member of their starting pitching staff for the second game in a row. Yesterday it was Tiajuan Walker; today’s it’s Zack Wheeler, who last wore a Mets uniform 4 years ago.

-The Mets have a 4-4 record against the Phillies so far this season.
-Five of their last eight games will be against them. The way things are going now though, that last series at Citi Field might not mean anything other than possibly seeding for Philly: either the #4 seed or the #5 seed. That’d still be important of course because it would be for homefield advantage in the three-game Wildcard Round Series. Something to keep an eye on down the road.
-The Mets' 5-man bench today will consist of Alvarez (R), Locastro (R), Ortega (L), Guillorme (L), & Vogelbach (L).
Tankin’ in the rain!

2 of the last 8 games are on WPIX (tomorrow is one).

The other 6--including today--are on SNY. Let's see if tomorrow's game is rained out due to expected crappy weather and rescheduled for Monday night when both clubs are off.

Put ANOTHER one in the books!

more time on the last day of the season on October 1st against the Phillies again, but this time in Flushing (that will probably be a meaningless game).

Today's Mets @ Phillies game has a new game time.

It was moved from 1:05 pm ET to 6:05 pm ET. Makes sense considering the weather forecast for the Philly area. Watch out for Hurricane Ophelia!
