Preview: Mets at Rockies May 9, 2011

New York Mets (15-19) at Colorado Rockies (18-13) 8:40pm

Chris Capuano (2-3 5.40) vs. Jhoulys Chacin (4-2 2.85)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The first place Rockies just got swept in San Francisco and are 2-7 in their last nine games. They put an absolute beating on the Mets three weeks ago when they swept the Mets at Citi Field in four games. Troy Tulowitzki was unstoppable in that series. The Rockies have won four of the six games Chacin started this season. He won his last start in Arizona going 7 innings and allowing 2 runs on 3 hits.

Capuano pitched well in his last start although the Mets lost to the Giants. He went 6.1 innings and allowed 2 runs. His starts have been pretty inconsistent this season so it’s tough to predict what we’ll see from him tonight. For his career, he’s 2-2 with a 3.00 ERA in 4 games at Coors Field.

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.
