The game preview for tonight is the same as the one posted yesterday for game 25. I wanted to briefly discuss though how I order the games by number, because there are two ways. Lets say that I was about to post last night's preview after they announced that the game was postponed. Well obviously I would not post it. However, when posting it today, I would still say its game 25, why?
Well technically thats incorrect and I have been doing that all year on purpose. The game tonight is really game 27, thanks to two rain-outs this season. The reason that I do not recognize the rain-out games is because I like to look at games in a row. A player might be in a streak games 13 to 20, and I would want to note that. Later in the season, when this game is made up, that simple statement can get bogged down by saying that a player was in a hot streak games 105-116 including game 26.
So be aware when the articles are titled here, the number is literally coming from the wins + the losses.
Like all things in life, there are exceptions to what was stated above. If a game gets suspended, when it is picked up again, it will be addressed by the number it was when the game was first played.
Also, I would like to welcome readers here from Mets Merized Online. Starting today, Game Preview posts from this site will be simulposted over on Mets Merized Online.
