From a mile high to Flushing, Queens, Colorado is coming to town. The Mets are coming back from a six game road trip in which they went 2-4, the same record as their last home stand. R.A. Dickey gets the start for the Mets today as he takes on Alex White. Dickey is 15-4 over 168.1 innings of work with an ERA of 2.89. Dickey had a good stretch of starts get interrupted last time out as he allowed 5 ER over 6 innings and 10 hits against the Reds. Last year he had one start against the Rox where he allowed 5 ER over 6.1 innings. The Rockies have the following stats against Dickey:

Hernandez: 0-4
Fowler: 2-4
(and that’s it, seriously)

Alex White is 2-6 over 14 starts and 69.0 innings with an ERA of 5.74. In his last four starts he has an ERA of 3.63 in that very interesting set up that the Rockies have. One start was 5.1 innings, the others were 4.0. In his young career he has never faced the Mets and the only person on the Mets to see him is Torres (0-2).

Let’s Go Mets!
