Preview: Mets at Marlins to Close the Year



Tomorrow, the Mets arrive to put a three-game series cap on the ugly Marlins season.

Josh Johnson takes the hill in an effort to add another win to his record for the year.  With the awful run support generated by the Marlins, the outstanding job Johnson had delivered this season only has three wins to show for it.  Johnson hasn’t yielded more than three runs in all but one of his last 12 starts. Let’s hope that Met callup Jeurys Familia like to serve up cotton balls.  Familia is being looked at by the Mets organization as a potential starter next year, and tomorrow will be his first start.  He’s seen some big-league time this year since his September callup, throwing out of the bullpen seven times.

As always, the trouble spots to look out for tomorrow involve the bullpen and Marlin bats.
