Milwaukee Brewers at New York Mets
Friday May 11, 6:10 PM - Cy Suppan v. Jorge Sosa
Saturday May 12, 12:10 PM - Ben Sheets v. Mike Pelfrey
Sunday, May 13, 12:10 PM- Chris Capuano v. Oliver Perez
The pitching matchups appear to be in our favor, but the Mets pitching staff has surprised this season, posting an MLB best 2.90 ERA (due mostly to their top 4 relievers allowing just 3 earned runs in 58 innings this year). Thank goodness the Brewers won't be facing Maine or Glavine, easily the Mets 2 best starters this season. The Mets have the best lineup in the NL - 174 runs scored, .356 team OBP, and Jose "I'm so much faster than every major leaguer it's not even funny" Reyes (.352 /.423 /.559, 19 SBs). If Delgado ever heats up to a shell of his former self, they have 4 legitimate 30+ HR guys in the middle of their lineup with Beltran, Delgado, Wright, and Alou (22 HR in 345 AB last season). Let's hope Cy Suppan and the Crew can somehow escape Shea with 2 of 3.
