Preview: Dodgers at Mets May 8, 2011

Los Angeles Dodgers (15-19) at New York Mets (15-18) 1:10pm

Clayton Kershaw (3-3 3.38) vs. R.A. Dickey (1-3 4.62)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets are going for the sweep today before they leave for Colorado. It won’t be easy against Kershaw though, one of the best young pitchers in baseball. His last start was a good win against the Cubs going 7 innings and allowing only 2 runs.

Dickey hasn’t gotten a win since April 3rd and he got rocked in his last start against the Giants for 6 runs in 6 innings. He hasn’t been the stopper that he was last year by any stretch of the imagination.

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.
