Preview: Mets at Astros May 13, 2011

New York Mets (17-20) at Houston Astros (14-23) 8:05pm

Dillon Gee (2-0 3.80) vs. Bud Norris (2-2 3.16)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The last place Mets square off against the last place Astros in another barn burner of a series. The Astros took two out of three from the Mets at Citi Field last month. The Astros have lost three series’ in a row. Norris has been pitching really well though. He’s only allowed 6 runs in his last five starts over 32 innings.

Gee is making his fourth start of the year. The Mets have won all three games that he started this season. And he hasn’t allowed more than 2 runs in any start. It could be a decent pitching matchup even though both teams aren’t very good.

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.
