Preview: Mets at Pirates June 12, 2011

New York Mets (31-33) at Pittsburgh Pirates (31-32) 1:35pm

Chris Capuano (4-6 4.86) vs. Kevin Correia (8-4 3.64)

TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets blew a winnable game yesterday on a bad play at third base by Daniel Murphy. I’d expect to see Justin Turner there today. Capuano lost a game to the Pirates last week at Citi Field. His record and ERA are pretty bad but he’s been a victim of bad defense and lack of run support this season.

Correia pitched a solid game against the Mets last week (6 IP, 2 ER) and then lost to the D-Backs in his next start (5 IP, 4 ER).

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.
