Preview: Nationals at Mets May 18, 2011

Washington Nationals (20-21) at New York Mets (19-22) 7:10pm

Tom Gorzelanny (2-2 3.40) vs. Jon Niese (2-4 5.03)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Nationals come to town for a two game series near .500 on the season. Gorzelanny had been pitching really well until his last start against the Marlins. He only went 4.2 innings and gave up 4 runs including 3 home runs.

Niese got pushed back after last night’s rain out. His last start wasn’t great but he got 3 home runs of support from Carlos Beltran in Colorado and got a win. He gave up 5 runs in 6.1 innings. But it’s tough to judge a curve ball pitcher on a start in Colorado.

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.
