TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets arrive in Pittsburgh coming off a big series win in Milwaukee. That isn’t easy to do. The Brewers have been nearly unbeatable at home this season. The Pirates have won three series in a row from the Mets, Phillies, and D-Backs.

Morton has been pitching really well for the Pirates. He hasn’t allowed more than 2 runs in his last five starts. The Pirates are 6-5 in his 11 starts this year.

The Mets are 8-0 in Gee’s starts this year. He was fantastic in his last start against the Braves at home throwing 7 shutout innings and getting his sixth straight win.

Jason Bay will ride the pine again for the second straight game in an attempt to get his swing together.

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.
