Mets @ Nationals: Series Preview

DC Sports Nexus ---- Friday, August 17, 2012

The Nats are 73-45.  They are the best team in baseball, and they are coming back home to face the New York Mets in a three game series.  The Mets are 17.5 games out of first place, and below .500 on the season.  Here is how the series stacks up:
  • Friday: 7:05 PM, Santana (6-8) vs Detwiler (6-5).
  • Saturday: 7:05 PM, Niese (9-6) vs Jackson (7-7).
  • Sunday: 1:35 PM, Hefner (2-4) vs Gonzalez (15-6).
Game of the Series:  Saturday.  If Detwiler doesn't take a loss Friday, and Jackson wins Saturday, every Nat's starter will have a winning record for the season.  Wow.

Sound of the Series:  With all the Strasburg news in the National media it seems everyone is coming out and talking about how it used to be in the old days with pitchers.  Lots of talk about different generations of ball players.

Prediction Time:
Time to see what I know about baseball by picking how the games are going to fall.
  • Nationals WIN Friday.
  • Nationals WIN Saturday.
  • Nationals WIN Sunday.
Nationals SWEEP Series 3-0.
