    Atlanta Braves (49-39) @ New York Mets (39-49) 7/7-7/10



    @



    Atlanta Braves @New York Mets



    Monday, 7/7 7:10 PM

    Mike Minor, LHP (2-5, 4.73 ERA/4.50 FIP/3.50 xFIP) vs Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP (2-3, 4.81 ERA/4.00 FIP/4.83 xFIP)



    Minor logged at least six innings in 30 of 32 starts in 2013, but he has failed to do so in three of his past five turns. He gave up two home runs in his last outing, marking his seventh multi-homer game in the past 18.


    Matsuzaka is the leading candidate to lose his rotation spot when Dillon Gee returns from the disabled list. He did not help his cause last time out, allowing five runs over five innings against the Braves, with seven hits and three walks.
    Tuesday, 7/8 7:10 PM

    Julio Teheran, RHP (8-5, 2.29 ERA/3.22 FIP/3.64 xFIP) vs Jacob deGrom, RHP (1-5, 3.77 ERA/3.78 FIP/3.87 xFIP)



    Teheran recorded his eighth start of one earned run allowed or fewer in seven or more innings in his 18 starts this year on July 2 against the Mets. He owns a 1.79 ERA in nine starts against the NL East in 2014.


    All three runs that deGrom allowed in last time out, as well as four of the 10 baserunners, came in the first. He recovered to deliver four scoreless innings after that, and will look to take the momentum into his next start, also against the Braves.

    Wednesday, 7/9 7:10 PM

    Ervin Santana, RHP (7-5, 3.93 ERA/3.18 FIP/3.16 xFIP) vs Dillon Gee, RHP (3-1, 2.73 ERA/4.31 FIP/4.36 xFIP)



    Santana has seemingly cured some of the ills that plagued him as he posted a 6.44 ERA in six starts from May 16-June 12. As he's allowed three earned runs or less in each of his past four starts, he's had better command of his slider.


    Gee will replace Jon Niese (strained left shoulder) while making his first start since May 10. While rehabbing his strained right lat, Gee allowed two runs in 10 2/3 innings across three Minor League outings. His highest pitch count was 75.

    Thursday, 7/10 7:10 PM

    Aaron Harang, RHP (8-6, 3.67 ERA/3.48 FIP/3.98 xFIP) vs Bartolo Colon, RHP (8-7, 4.04 ERA/3.80 FIP/3.78 xFIP)



    As critics continue to wonder when he'll come back down to earth, Harang continues to surprise. He's allowed two earned runs or less in 13 of 18 starts. He tossed seven no-hit innings when he last started at Citi Field in April.


    With the Trade Deadline looming, each of Colon's starts could influence potential suitors should the Mets decide to sell. He allowed 10 runs in 13 innings his last two starts, and nine runs in the opening frame of his last four outings.

    I wish I had more confidence in Minor and Santana! With the pitching matchups, the series has the makings of a 2-2 split. But I can also see us taking three. Doesn't Gee always give us issues?

    Gee is the Kyle Kendrick of the Mets to us. That should be interesting..

    What a frustrating game! Runners on base almost every inning and nothing to show for it!

    He was against Grandy, a lefty, which is his job. It's not the managers fault Avilan shook off Bethancourt then gave up a homer.

    this year Avila era is 4.25 and the lefty bat again him 290 , if his job is again lefty our stupid manager have to know, Walden was in the bull-pen ready, and any way he have to come in the 8 after 2 lefty hit avilan, so is a bad decisions let avilan in the inning and even worse decisions bring him in the 8 with 1 run lead.

    If Shae had given up those runs would it have been the managers fault? No, it would not. Fredi played the lefty lefty matchup like every other manager would have. I'm not a Fredi fan but throwing your lefty against a lefty is a typical manager move.
