Preview: Rockies at Mets April 14, 2011

Colorado Rockies (8-2) at New York Mets (4-7)  12:10pm

Jorge De La Rosa (1-0 1.74) vs. R.A. Dickey (1-1 2.45)

Greg Reynolds (0-0 3.00) vs. Chris Capuano (1-0 6.75)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: We’ve got a single admission doubleheader this afternoon. You don’t get many of those anymore. So enjoy if you have tickets for the game today.

The first game is the premier pitching matchup of the series. De La Rosa pitched two pretty good games so far but hasn’t gotten deeper than 5. 1 IP yet. Dickey had a rough start against the Nationals when he broke a nail during the game but appears to be 100% for today’s game.

Reynolds made one decent start against the Pirates going 6 IP and allowing 2 runs. Capuano made one start against the Nationals and wasn’t that good but got a win. He went 6 IP and allowed 4 runs.

The Mets need to dig out of a hole here down 2-0 in the series after losing a home series to the Nationals. The season could get really ugly today or get back on track if the Mets can sweep the doubleheader.

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.
