New York Mets Series Preview: Amazins Begin 9-Game Road Trip, Cleveland Indians Up First

Game Times, Predictions

  • Game 1: Friday, 7:10 PM ET, SNY
  • Game 2: Saturday, 4:10 PM ET, WOR
  • Game 3: Sunday, 1:10 PM ET, SNY

This road series vs another weak opponent could perhaps jump-start the Mets offense. Even though the Mets still struggled offensively in their 2-1 series finale win over the Marlins, they finally got a big hit with Kevin Plawecki‘s two run single in the seventh inning. The Mets have struggled mightily with runners in scoring position during the first week and a half of this season. Maybe Plawecki’s huge hit could be the start of a renaissance.

Bold Prediction:

Matt Harvey will finally have a Dark Knight like performance, shutting down the Indians for eight innings.

Curtis Granderson will build on his two hits in his last two games with at least a hit in each of the three games including his first homer of 2016.

With that, the Mets offense will finally have at least a decent series and that will propel them to a three game sweep.

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
