This is the second series between these division rivals. New York swept the first one at home so the Phillies will be looking to return the favour.
New York Mets
The Mets have sunk below .500 after yet another case of not backing up Jacob deGrom with some offense. They have lost three of their last four games scoring a combined two runs in the losses. We are getting to the end of the month so concerns have to be rising on guys like Francisco Lindor and Michael Conforto.
Marcus Stroman did not pitch last season. He has show no rust this year, limiting base runners and posting a team-best three wins in April. He does not have the big arms of some of the other starters on the staff but he knows how to pitch.
The bullpen can be better for the Mets. If they are not going to hit they need this group to make the few runs they do score stand up more. This will be a tough test against a Philly team that can really smack around mistakes.
The Phillies were .500 heading into Thursday action. They might be down three regulars this weekend with Didi Gregorius and Jean Segura hurt and Bryce Harper a question mark after getting hit in the face with a pitch. Rhys Hoskins and JT Realmuto may need to carry the offense for a while.
The Phillies are looking for answers at the back of the rotation. Right now Chase Anderson is not giving them much. I do not see how they can expect more from him either.
Archie Bradley is still out. He is the dominant arm in the pen. They need him back for everyone to slot into the roles that make the most sense. The pen has been just OK this season.

Free New York Mets vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
Stroman is a huge advantage for the Mets and they have been scoring for him too. I like the Phillies but not with Anderson on the hill and not with a limited lineup. They down some lefty bats that could be really useful in this one.
