This is it for Met fans...

We're in Arizona this weekend. This might as well be our World Series.

We've owned the Diamondbacks, ESPECIALLY on the road, to the tune of 11-1 in the last 12 meetings in the desert.

The way Arizona's team is looking, the tides may change this year.

Fri - Maine vs. Owings
Sat - Pelfrey vs. Webb
Sun - Santana vs. Haren

Luckily, it's a hitter's ballpark, which is why the Mets have flourished there over the years. But with Micah Owings on his A-game this season, and Webb off to such a great start, this is a series to watch.

For all of Webb's success over the past few years, he has had little against the Mets. He's 2-6 in nine starts. His E.R.A., however, is 2.26. He may get some run support Saturday with Pelfrey on the mound. It's the D'Backs best shot to put runs on the board.

I've got the Mets winning (at least) 2 of 3 here. I won't go out on a limb and guarantee a Santana win, but Friday and Sunday are our best opportunites to grab a W.
