    Opening Weekend 2011 - New York Mets @ Florida Marlins







    APRIL 1 - 3

    METS
    79-83 (.488) - 4TH IN THE NL EAST
    ROAD: 32-49



    MARLINS
    80-82 (.494) - 3RD IN THE NL EAST
    HOME: 41-40

    FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 7:10 PM

    TV: CABLE-SNY / DIRECTV-735

    vs.
    Mike Pelfrey, RHP (15-9, 3.66 ERA) - Josh Johnson, RHP (11-6, 2.30 ERA)

    METS: Pelfrey spent the first three months of last season pitching the most polished ball of his young career before his momentum halted with an 0-3, 10.02-ERA July. Promisingly, Pelfrey showed some resilience with a 1.82 ERA in August and a 4.34 mark in September. He'll have to avoid similar inconsistency in 2011, when he will begin the year as the Mets' de facto ace.
    MARLINS: Josh Johnson has officially been declared good to go. "He's ready," said Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez. "He's ready for the season." Based on how he pitched Tuesday, Johnson is clearly on pace to get things going for real.

    SATURDAY, APRIL 2, 7:10 PM

    TV: CABLE-SNY / DIRECTV-730

    vs.
    Jonathon Niese, LHP (9-10, 4.20 ERA) - Ricky Nolasco, RHP (14-9, 4.51 ERA)

    METS: With staff ace Johan Santana on the shelf, Niese will be asked to help pick up the slack in his second full season. If his rookie campaign was any indication, the young southpaw should be able to hold his own. Niese finished with nine wins, a serviceable 4.20 ERA and 7.7 K/9 rate, but like many a young starter, walks were his Achilles heel.
    MARLINS: If there were ever any doubt -- and there might have been just a little -- Wednesday's game pretty much cleared it up. Ricky Nolasco will be the Marlins' No. 2 starter this season. Not that Nolasco had any doubts to begin with. "I didn't feel anything different," he said. "I know what I have to do to prepare myself, and I think the team is confident in my abilities that I'm going to do what I need to do and stretch out and be ready for the second game." That's just it. In Nolasco's mind, he was always going to pitch the second game of the regular season behind ace Josh Johnson -- just like he did last year.

    SUNDAY, APRIL 3, 1:10 PM

    TV: CABLE-SNY / DIRECTV-727

    vs.
    R. A. Dickey, RHP (11-9, 2.84 ERA) - Javier Vazquez, RHP (10-10, 5.32 ERA)

    METS: Dickey, who produced just 20 unmemorable starts from 2005-09, slashed his WHIP from 1.62 to 1.19 and enjoyed the first double-digit win season of his career in 2010. The former first-rounder threw his knuckleball more than 80 percent of the time, and the result was the best ground-ball rate of his career and a surprisingly excellent 2.17 BB/9 mark.
    MARLINS: "Javy Vazquez, I think he will bring some stability to the middle of the rotation," Rodriguez said. "He brings experience. He's an innings-eater. I feel he will keep us in the game. A year ago, Vazquez went 10-10 with a 5.32 ERA with the Yankees. The right-hander has reached double-digits in wins in 11 straight seasons.

    Mets win 2 of 3, which likely means they will get swept.

    Wow tsu, you caught me offguard. This one is strictly because I'm a dieharder, loyal, fanatic, maniacal zealot.

    We don't even know our final roster yet. Who cares, we win 2 of 3.

    Lets Go Mets!!!!......

    You know baseball is back when the great tsunami gets us started with his well put together previews for the series ahead. I'm so jazzed for the season to start. Let's do this guys, 2/3 against the Fightin' Fish.
