Preview: Mets at Braves April 17, 2011

New York Mets (4-11)  at Atlanta Braves (7-8) 1:35pm

Dillon Gee (0-0 NA) vs. Tommy Hanson (1-2 3.38)

TV: WPIX   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets have now lost seven straight games and are relying on Dillon Gee to turn the tide. He’s making a spot start, called up from Triple-A Buffalo for the game today. He made two starts at Buffalo already, one very good against Pawtucket and the other really bad against Syracuse for a 1-1 record with a 4.63 ERA.

The Braves are looking to sweep the series behind Hanson. In his last start against the Marlins he threw 7 shutout innings to get the win.

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.
