Found May 04, 2012 on 213 Miles From Shea:

The Mets look to put their last series behind them when they came into Houston flat after a high energy series in Colorado. In the last series the Mets bats slipped off while the bullpen fell down into darkness. Dillon Gee will be taking on Wade Miley in tonight’s game.

Dillon Gee is 2-2 on the season with a 4.85 ERA over 26.0 innings of work with 23 strikeouts. His last start (7.0 IP, 4 R, 3 ER) was a good rebound from his previous start (6.2 IP, 7 ER). He made two starts against the Diamondbacks with a 1-1 record over 11.0 innings with a 4.91 ERA. The Diamondbacks have the following numbers against Gee:

Overbay 1-6
Roberts 1-6
Uptson 2-5, HR
Montero 1-5, HR
Parra 1-5

The Mets bats will get a crack at Wade Miley who is 3-0 with an ERA of 1.29 over 21.0 innings of work. Last season he made 7 starts for Arizona with a record of 4-2 over 40.0 innings with a 4.50 ERA. Wade has never made a start against the Mets, and has no batting record against any Mets player. For the Mets bats, Davis is finally starting to hit as he had a .333 BA over the  last road trip so hopefully he brings that back with him to Queens.

Let’s Go Mets!

Pre-game: Arizona Diamondbacks (13-13) @ New York Mets (13-12)

Early season ups and downs are coming plentifully thus far in 2012 for the Mets. From the opening season sweep, to the weak stretch against Philadelphia and San Francisco, to the five out of six they took from Miami and Colorado. And then, an ugly three game series against Houston was yet another indication of how shaky the foundation of the 2012 Mets are at the moment. The Mets...

MMO Series Preview: Diamondbacks @ Mets, Tonight’s Lineup

I start this series preview as an angry Mets fan. Nothing, and I mean nothing, makes me madder as a fan than when a team plays down to the level of their competition. The Houston Astros shouldn’t have won 2 games against the Mets, let alone sweep them. Everything was in the Mets favor heading into that series, and they laid down. I’m not one to judge Terry Collins on little moves...
