On Saturday night, the Washington Nationals will be led onto the field by Gio Gonzalez, as they play host to the New York Mets, who will be countering with Jeremy Hefner.

Is this going to be the day that RHP Jeremy Hefner figures out how to keep the ball in the park? It really doesn’t seem all that likely considering the fact that he has allowed five dingers in just 10 innings of work. Perhaps the worst thing that happened for him is all of the bad weather that the Mets have faced lately, first in Minnesota, then in Colorado. Hefner had a pair of starts scratched, and as a result, he had to pitch out of the bullpen two days ago just to get some work in. It’s not a good situation to be in for the Mets for sure. Washington meanwhile, got over its three game sweep at the hands of the Atlanta Braves by taking two out of three from the Miami Marlins in South Beach, and now, they are throwing what should be one of their best arms in LHP Gio Gonzalez. Of course, we’re not 100% certain that Gonzalez is going to be able to get the job done either, knowing that he hasn’t thrown more than six innings in any of his starts this year. Needless to say, when we are in a situation when we aren’t all that confident in what is going on with pitchers, we play the ‘over’, especially when the number is this small. If the ball isn’t going to stay in Citi Field on this day, there should be at least 10 on the board by the time this one is said and done with.
