Cubs Invade New York City for 1st Games Against Mets @ CITI Field

Posted on 05 September 2009 by Lou


Let’s hope the Cubs fare better at CITI Field than they did at the New Yankee Stadium during spring training back in late March.  The Yankees pummeled the Cubs in 2 contests at the New Yankee Stadium in the Bronx and the Cubs are looking to exact some revenge on the city of New York during a 3-game weekend set against the Mets.  It has been a disappointing season for each team.

The Cubs are 67-65 and they trail the Cards by 10.5 games in the NL Central division.  They still have a slim shot at the NL Wild Card race – trailing the Rockies by 6 games – but that is more of a “technical” shot of still making the playoffs.

The Mets are 60-74 and they trail the Phillies by 18.5 games in the NL East race.  Ouch.  Injuries to all of their big stars have cost the Mets a successful inaugural season at CITI Field.

Carlos Zambrano will battle Bobby Parnell in the series opener on Friday night.  The Mets roughed up Big Z for 4 runs on 11 hits last Sunday at Wrigley Field.  Big Z has struggled since coming off the DL 2 weeks ago.
