The Mets square off against one of the best teams in MLB, for a 2 game series, and yes, the Mets have already faced Oakland in a 2 game series. Dillon Gee and Zack Wheeler are the series probables for Tuesday and Wednesday respectively. The Mets will also have an extra bullpen arm, Gonzalez Germen, for a few days while Bartolo Colon is mourning the death of his 63 year old mother, who passed in the local Dominican Hospital on Monday. This is a relatively short series for the Mets who will face some big name pitchers in the upcoming days whose first names include Scott, Jeff and Clayton, and if you know who I am referring to, you might understand the reason I am concerned that this slumping offense might have trouble getting through this road trip.First pitch tonight is set for 10:10 pm, and 3:40 pm tomorrow.
