Preview: Angels at Mets June 19, 2011

Los Angeles Angels (34-38) at New York Mets (35-36) 1:10pm

Tyler Chatwood (3-4 4.20) vs. Jon Niese (6-5 3.46)

TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets and Angels play the rubber game of the series for Father’s Day today. It should be a great weather day for everyone going to the game with their father. The Angels have Chatwood on the mound today, a rookie who’s been very inconsistent. The Angels have lost the last three games that he started. The Royals roughed him up badly in his last start for 5 runs in 3.2 innings.

Niese has been fantastic in his last six starts. He hasn’t given up more than 2 runs in a game during that span and has only allowed 1 home run. He’s won three straight decisions and is really in a good groove right now.

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.
