Preview: Marlins at Mets May 17, 2011

Florida Marlins (24-16) at New York Mets (19-22) 7:10pm

Ricky Nolasco (3-0 3.02) vs. Jon Niese (2-4 5.03)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets try to even the short series tonight behind Niese. He didn’t look great in his last start in Colorado, but he did enough to get a win because Carlos Beltran supported him with three home runs.

Nolasco has been pitching really well this year for the Marlins. They’re 5-3 in games he’s started. He’s only allowed 3 earned runs in his last two starts over 13.1 innings.

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.
