Game 3 Preview: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves (1:35 PM)

STARTING PITCHERS

Dillon Gee (2010: 2-2, 2.18 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, 1.13 K/BB): Gee was picked in the 21st round of the 2007 draft. The 24 year-old has never been considered a real top prospect, yet he owns a very respectable career in the minors (28 Wins, 3.78 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, 4.05 K/BB), and had a nice debut for the Mets in 2010. At best the right-hander projects to be a bottom rotation guy, but he does give the Mets a better chance to win than, say, D.J. Carrasco. (Career vs. Braves: .250/.333/.375 line with a 3.86 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, 1.00 K/BB ratio)

Tommy Hanson (1-2, 3.38 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, 1.60 K/BB): Hanson’s performance so far in 2011 doesn’t suggest it, but the right-hander is easily one of the best pitchers in the National League. From 2009 to 2010, Hanson owns a combined 21 Wins, 3.16 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 2.83 K/BB ratio. At age 24, the Braves not only have themselves a future ace, but a present one too. (Career vs. Mets: .191/.244/.255 line with a 1.76 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, 3.63 K/BB ratio)
