Philly PhanticPhiladelphia Phillies vs. New York Mets Tuesday Free MLB Pick: Neither the New York Mets nor the Philadelphia Phillies are going anywhere at this point, and the fact of the matter is that this is just one of the many games on the MLB betting lines that means absolutely nothing the rest of the way this year. However, we think that we have a great angle to come up with successful MLB picks in this one, and we are making this game our free MLB pick of the day.

Is it just us, or do the Mets look demoralized right now? Not only is the team bad, and not only does the team have no offense whatsoever, but two days after RHP Jeremy Hefner learned that he needed Tommy John surgery and will likely miss all of next season, RHP Matt Harvey, the face of the franchise is about to have to go through the same exact thing. Matters are so bad that Mr. Met is getting ready to pitch on Wednesday (oh sorry, that’s Dice-K Matsuzaka that is going to be out there instead).

Anyway, back to this game. Philly is actually playing pretty good baseball right now, having won five out of six and seven out of nine, and the one loss that the team has had in the last week came in 18 innings with two position players pitching the end of the game. The Mets meanwhile, are a mess. They have lost five in a row, and they have scored just a total of six runs in those five games. The offense is completely lacking without 3B David Wright in the lineup, and the feeling in the clubhouse has to be one of, “Let’s just get this darn season over with.” RHP Kyle Kendrick has the better stuff anyway, and we don’t think that LHP Jon Niese deserves to be the favorite in this one whatsoever.
