Preview: Mets at Rockies May 11, 2011

New York Mets (16-20) at Colorado Rockies (19-15) 3:10pm

Jon Niese (1-4 4.71) vs. Ubaldo Jimenez (0-2 5.88)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets have a chance to win the series this afternoon in Colorado. The weather is supposed to be bad though so it may be tough to get the game in. But they’ll try their best because the Mets aren’t going to be back in Colorado again this year.

The Rockies have lost all five games that Jimenez started this year. His last start was pretty good in San Francisco though. He went 6 innings and only allowed 1 run.

Niese has been pitching well for the past month, not allowing more than 3 runs in a game since April 19. David Wright is scheduled to have a day off today and Ike Davis probably won’t play with a strained calf in last night’s game.

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.
