Preview: Pirates at Mets June 1, 2011

Pittsburgh Pirates (25-28) at New York Mets (25-29) 7:10pm

Kevin Correia (7-4 3.44) vs. Chris Capuano (3-5 4.94)

TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: Correia has been having quite a season for the Pirates. He’s been having some great starts but he has been hit hard a couple of times. The Nationals, Dodgers, and Brewers have hit him but the Mets don’t have much offense so they could be in trouble against him.

The Mets are 3-6 when Capuano starts this season. He was 1-3 in May but should have had a better record. In his three losses, the Mets scored 4 runs behind him. Expect the Pirates right handed hitters to tee off on him. Righties are hitting .312 against him this year.

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.
