Preview: Mets at Pirates August 22, 2010

New York Mets (62-61) at Pittsburgh Pirates (40-83) 1:35 pm

Johan Santana (10-7 2.97) vs Zach Duke (5-12 5.32)

TV: SNY  Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets actually have a chance to sweep a road series against an NL team today. Hey, it is the Pirates though. Santana went 8 innings in his last start in Houston but took the loss after giving up 4 runs. Duke has been getting knocked around recently and the Pirates lost the last four games he started. It’ll be interesting to see if the Mets go with Chris Carter in right field again against a lefty. The lineup has been scoring runs but doing it against righties.

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.
