Preview: Mets at Giants July 8, 2011

New York Mets (45-43) at San Francisco Giants (50-39) 10:15pm

R.A. Dickey (4-7 3.68) vs. Ryan Vogelsong (6-1 2.13)

TV: SNY             Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Giants just split a four game series at home with the Padres and have a 2 game lead in the NL West over the D-Backs. Vogelsong has been kicking around the league for the last 10 years but he’s been pitching pretty well this season. The Mets hit him hard on May 3rd at Citi Field for 5 runs in 4 innings. But that was the last time he allowed more than 3 runs in a start.

Dickey has been pitching well too. Although he left his last start against the Yankees after 5 innings with tightness in his glute. The Mets have won the last three games that Dickey started.

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.
