Game Preview: Pirates at Mets [Game 28] May 8, 2009

pirates-logoPittsburgh Pirates (12-16 Road: 5-9) at New York Mets (14-13 Home: 8-6)  7:10 pm

Jeff Karstens (1-1 5.85) vs. Jonathan Niese (0-0 0.00)

TV: SNY    RadioWFAN

What to watch:  The Pirates come to town losing 9 of their last 10 games. They had a good start but completely lost it, not unlike the Marlins. Karstens last two starts haven’t been very good and he hasn’t won a game since April 23. Niese hasn’t been great in the minors this season but makes his season debut in place of the “injured” Oliver Perez tonight. This one has the makings of a high scoring game, even in spacious Citi Field.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
