Preview: Rockies at Mets April 13, 2011

Colorado Rockies (7-2) at New York Mets (4-6)  7:10pm

Esmil Rogers (1-0 1.23) vs. Jon Niese (0-1 6.55)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: Here’s a re-boot of last night’s rain out. The Mets will try to avoid their fourth straight loss tonight to the Rockies at home. Niese got crushed in Philly in his last start going 4 IP and allowing 6 runs. He’ll need to do a lot better than that tonight for the Mets to get a win.

Rogers made one excellent start this season in Pittsburgh going 7.1 IP and allowing only 1 run. He’s only made two relief appearances against the Mets in his career throwing 3 IP and allowing 1 run. Tonight will be only his 11th career start for the 25 year old righty.

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.
