Preview: Mets at Yankees May 20, 2011

New York Mets (21-22) at New York Yankees (21-19) 7:05pm

R.A. Dickey (1-5 5.08) vs. Freddie Garcia (2-3 3.22)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets and Yankees start up a three game series tonight in the Bronx. The Yanks are coming into the series with a three game winning streak and the Mets have won two.

Dickey’s season has been terrible. He still hasn’t won since his first start of the season and he got hit hard again in his last start in Houston. He certainly looks like the pre-2010 Dickey this season.

Garcia has had some good games this year but the Red Sox hit him hard in his last start. He gave up 4 earned runs in 5.1 innings and he could fall apart anytime. He’s 34 years old but looks like he’s been around forever.

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.
