Preview: Nationals at Mets April 8, 2011

Washington Nationals (2-4) at New York Mets (3-3)  4:10pm

Jordan Zimmermann (0-1, 3.00) vs.R.A. Dickey (1-0. 0.00)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets home opener isn’t sold out but it will be fun for a big crowd today. The Nationals come to town after losing three of their last four games. Zimmermann had a good start in a loss to Atlanta. He went 6 IP and gave up 2 earned runs on 4 hits and 3 walks.

Dickey had a very good start against the Marlins despite not being as sharp as he was at the end of last season. He threw 6 shutout innings in Florida in his season debut. Hopefully, he gives the fans something to cheer about today for the opener at Citi 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.
