Preview: A’s at Mets June 21, 2011

Oakland A’s (33-40) at New York Mets (35-37) 7:10pm

Josh Outman (2-1 3.14) vs. Dillon Gee (7-0 2.86)

TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The struggling A’s are in town for three games. They’re in last place in the AL West but, surprisingly, they’ve won five straight games including sweeping the Giants at home before coming to New York. Outman is a lefty who has made a few starts over the last few years but never getting any consistent time in the big leagues. He’s made five starts this year and four of them were pretty good.

Gee looks to continue his mind boggling run tonight in his eleventh start of the season. The Mets still haven’t lost a game that he started this season. In three starts this month he’s only allowed 1 run. He’s been extraordinary.

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.
