On Deck: May 21-Mets vs. Braves

New York Mets (22-21) at Atlanta Braves (24-21)  7:10pm

Mike Pelfrey (2-4) vs. Jair Jurrjens (4-3)

TV: SNY         Radio: WFAN

What to watch: After getting swept in a double header yesterday the Mets need to cut their losses in this Atlanta series by winning both tonight and tomorrow. The pressure is on Mike Pelfrey to pitch as well as he did in his last start (a loss) when he was fantastic. Willie Randolph is becoming a real distraction for this team. He’s finally starting to realize that he won’t be scrutinized so closely when the Mets win. Go figure! Willie is always the last to figure these things out.

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.
