Preview: Pirates at Mets May 31, 2011

Pittsburgh Pirates (24-28) at New York Mets (25-28) 7:10pm

James McDonald (3-3 5.23) vs. R.A. Dickey (2-5 4.50)

TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The big news is that Dickey is making this start after leaving his last start with an injured foot. It will be worth keeping an eye on him playing the field and running that bases. Expect the Pirates to test him out with some early bunts.

McDonald had a rough start to the season for the Pirates. But he’s been pretty good since the end of April. The Pirates are 4-6 in his starts this season and they’ve won four of the last six games he started.

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.
