Preview: A’s at Mets June 22, 2011

Oakland A’s (34-40) at New York Mets (35-38) 7:10pm

Gio Gonzalez (6-5 2.69) vs. R.A. Dickey (3-7 4.00)

TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: After losing the first game of the series, the Mets need to win tonight and tomorrow to take the series from the A’s and avoid a losing home stand. It won’t be easy going up against Gonzalez tonight. He’s having an excellent season so far. He did it last year too. In 2010, he had a 3.23 ERA in 33 starts for the A’s.

Dickey will be looking to regain his form after having a terrible start in Atlanta last week. He gave up 4 runs in 4 innings and just didn’t look like himself. Maybe Jason Bay can help him out tonight by continuing to hit the ball again.

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.
