Preview: Mets at Pirates August 21, 2010

New York Mets (61-61) at Pittsburgh Pirates (40-82) 7:05 pm

Jon Niese (7-5 3.38) vs James McDonald (2-2 4.26)


What to watch: The Mets finally found some offense last night but it probably won’t be as easy tonight against McDonald. His last start was a really good one against the Marlins going 7 innings and only giving up 1 run on 3 hits. Niese has had three excellent starts in a row without getting a win. He’s only given up 3 runs in 21 innings over that span. Expect to see Chris Carter back in the cleanup spot tonight after having some success personally and as a team last night.

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.
