Preview: Mets at Pirates June 11, 2011

New York Mets (31-32) at Pittsburgh Pirates (30-32) 7:05pm

R.A. Dickey (3-6 4.04) vs. James McDonald (3-4 4.97)

TV: WPIX              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets are going for their third straight win tonight and their sixth in seven games. They’ll do it behind Dickey who’s been pitching really well since the middle of May. He’s still got a bad foot but it doesn’t appear to be slowing him down anywhere but at the plate.

McDonald has also been pitching really well since mid-May for the Pirates. Over his last four starts he’s pitched 22.2 innings and allowed only 7 runs (2.84 ERA).

It’ll be interesting to see if Jason Bay is back in the lineup tonight. The lineup seems to be much more consistent without him.

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.
