TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Pirates come to town tonight to start a four game series. They’re currently in fourth place in the NL Central, 6.5 games behind the Cardinals. The Pirates arrived in New York from Chicago having won two of three games there.

Morton has been somewhat of a revelation for the Pirates after having a terrible 2010. The Pirates are 5-4 in his 9 starts and he’s really only had two bad starts. He’s also had two complete game victories this year including one that was a shutout of the Reds on May 18 in Cincinnati.

Gee has also pitched well in his 6 starts this season. The Mets are 6-0 in his starts. You can’t do much more than that. He’s just been a winner both this season and at the end of 2010 when he was called up.

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.
