The Miami Marlins and New York Mets will tangle in a three-game set starting tonight over the weekend. Miami sends out Henderson Alvarez versus Zack Wheeler in a matchup of potential aces.
|PROJ ERA||FIP||ERA||MARLINS||Mets||ERA||FIP||PROJ ERA|
Alvarez finished off another strong start his last time out, but the difference now is that he is not likely to end up in All-Star Game, which is a shame. Zack Wheeler is slowly working on getting his ERA to match up with his strong peripherals, and facing Miami's strikeout-prone offense may do the trick.
|MIAMI MARLINS||NEW YORK METS|
|C. Yelich - LF||C. Granderson - RF|
|Donovan Solano - 2B||Daniel Murphy - 2B|
|G. Stanton - RF||David Wright - 3B|
|Casey McGehee - 3B||Lucas Duda - 1B|
|Garrett Jones - 1B||Travis d'Arnaud - C|
|Marcell Ozuna - CF||K. Nieuwenhuis - LF|
|J. Saltalamacchia - C||Juan Lagares - CF|
|A. Hechavarria - SS||Ruben Tejada - SS|
|H. Alvarez - RHP||Zack Wheeler - RHP|
This is the typical Miami lineup that the Fish are sending Wheeler's way. It's probably also typical enough that it is similar to the one that Wheeler demolished in Andrew Heaney's debut start a few weeks back. Meanwhile, the Mets are trotting out their best against Miami tonight.
- Can the Fish get anything off of Wheeler, who threw a complete game shutout against Miami earlier last month?
- I'll be here for tonight's festivities, who's joining me?
