Preview: Mets at Rangers June 25, 2011

New York Mets (37-39) at Texas Rangers (41-36) 4:10pm

Jon Niese (6-6 3.70) vs. Alexi Ogando (7-2 2.66)

TV: Fox             Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets are going to have a tough time today against Ogando. He was in the bullpen last season but he’s been pitching really well as a starter this season. He’s stumbled a couple of times including against the Yankees when he allowed 6 runs in 1.2 innings on June 14. Otherwise, he’s had some great starts.

Niese really stumbled too in his last start against the Angels when he allowed 4 runs in 4 innings. He’ll be looking to get back on track in a tough park for pitchers this afternoon.

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.
