TV:SNY    Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Dodgers come to town off losing a series in Chicago and four of their last five. The big news is that Andre Ethier is bringing a 29 game hitting streak to this series. Kuroda has pitched well in his last three starts. He’s allowed 6 earned runs in 20 innings over that span.

Niese has also pitched well in his last three starts although the Mets lost two of the three. He allowed 6 earned runs over 19.1 innings over that span. He’s still trying to recover his ERA from a couple of terrible starts at the beginning of the season.

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.
