Preview: Mets at Braves June 16, 2011

New York Mets (34-34) at Atlanta Braves (38-31) 7:10pm

R.A. Dickey (3-7 3.98) vs. Mike Minor (0-2 4.50)

TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: Surprisingly, the Mets have a chance to sweep the Braves in Atlanta tonight. They’ll go for it with Dickey on the mound who has lost two of three starts since he hurt his foot. But he’s been pitching really well during that span allowing 7 runs in 23.2 innings (2.72 ERA).

The Braves have Minor on the mound tonight making his fifth start of the season. He’s never pitched more than 6 innings in a start this year and the Braves are 2-2 in his starts. In his last start, he allowed 2 runs over 6 innings in Houston.

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.
