I am faced with another heart versus head battle in terms of what we should expect against the Braves this weekend.
The Mets draw Derek Lowe, Jair Jurrjens, and Tim Hudson which certainly poses a challenge for Mets’ hitters. Obviously, the Mets injury situation would give an edge to Atlanta when comparing the lineups on paper.
The Mets are at home, and they are coming off one of their most exciting wins of the year. So they have that going for them, which is nice. I also like Dillon Gee matching up against Jurrjens. Maybe he helps the Mets get a win against a guy that they have had trouble against historically. Regardless, it looks like it will be a low scoring affair.
There is one thing that pushed me over in my final determination. Apparently, the Braves like to dress up like girls. That has to be a boost of confidence for the Mets as this has to take away any intimidation factor the third place Braves may have possessed.
I originally posted photo evidence but couldn’t bare to look at it. Hideous. You’ll have to click the link provided. I do have some standards.
Once again the Midwestropolitan crack research staff comes through.
I am expecting the Mets to take the series 2-1.
