Mets vs Rockies MLB 2010 Odds – April 15, 2010: After dropping the first three series of the season, the (2-6) New York Mets [+180 ML] will hope to salvage the finale, as they take on the hosting, sports betting odds favorite (5-3) Colorado Rockies [-200 ML] today. First pitch for this MLB 2010 Odds game is scheduled for 3:15 PM ET (1:15 PM MT) from Coors Field live on FSN and/or SNY.
The Mets have started their season by winning the first games of every series and dropping the last two. Against Colorado, New York will hope to do the same but the other way around, as the Rockies have taken the first two games of this series already. To do so, the Metropolitans will hope to get a solid outing from RHP Mike Pelfrey (1-0, 3.00 ERA).
"Everyone knows about his sinker," New York catcher Rod Barajas said. "But the cutter isn't just a good pitch, it's a great pitch. And he's not even that familiar with it yet."
For the Rockies, they came into this season with high expectations and thus far, they haven’t disappointed. Winners of three in a row, Colorado will try and sweep the Mets before embarking on a 7-game road trip. On the mound today for the Rockies will be LHP Jorge De La Rosa (1-0, 0.00 ERA), who has yet to lose a game against the Mets in his career.
De La Rosa has dominated the Mets to a 3-0 record and a 3.71 ERA in eight games, two as a starter. "I see this young man as part of the future of this organization, and a very bright part of this future," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. "This is starting pitcher-type stuff."
