Don Draper, Mets fan.

Look folks. I’m going to level with you. It’s a rainy Friday and there is a bobblehead tonight, so my attention span for writing a preview of the Mets is almost NIL (let alone the actual work I need to get done). So rather than drudge through writing a preview that I was going to half ass (and thus why would you read it?) I turned my responsibilities over to Twitter and promised to donate $1 to #EndNF (still going on all month btw. Read about it here) for every tweet someone sent me previewing the Mets Series.

So Here we go!:

So everyone go follow that account…because it is my other project when I am not baseballing. Also treat this whole post like a #FF. But we start with this tweet because it points out the fact that the Nats have not yet set their pitching rotation for Saturday and Sunday. The Nats could send out Gio and Jordan Zimmermann, who would be the next two up, but also could send out a combination of (Gio or JZ) and (JZ or Stephen Strasburg) because the built in extra day off allows them to do that. The fact that they haven’t said who is pitching yet bothers me a bit, but I’m going to try and not read too much into it other than they haven’t had to announce it yet. Speaking of obvious:

Gotta love John.

Okay so first Whare Are We Looking Forward To In This Series As Nats Fans?

Hmmm. Wonder what he’s on about… Oh right.

Later confirmed this is for Saturday’s game, which has a much higher chance of “sun” in any fashion.

That would be the minimum for a good series. I agree.


And How Will The Nats Beat The Mets This Weekend?

Dave gets things backwards sometimes.

This is a common, and correct answer.
