GAME 2 PREVIEW: Mets at Braves, 7:10 PM

Dillon Gee (7-0, 3.05 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 2.20 K/BB): Gee has been doing his best impression of Superman in 2011. Aside from the obvious non-loss status, the right-hander also owns a dominating .215/.293/.309 line against. Gee’s only “red flag” has been his slightly-less-than-league-average control (2.9 BB/9), however, the starter has only walked four batters in his last twenty-eight innings (spanning four starts). Even if Gee loses a game, will anyone really care if he continues to pitch as well as he has? (Career vs. Braves: .224/.297/.313 line with a 1.83 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, 1.29 K/BB)

Tim Hudson (5-5, 4.06 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 2.63 K/BB): Hudson’s ERA is a tick higher this year (4.06 ERA) than it was in 2010 (2.83 ERA), but many of his peripherals are actually better. The 35 year-old pitcher has a better WHIP (from 1.15 to 1.14), HR/9 (from 0.8 to 0.5), BB/9 (from 2.9 to 2.1), and K/BB (from 1.88 to 2.63). Hudson is giving up a few more hits this season (from 7.4 H/9 to 8.2 H/9) which partially accounts for his ERA spike, but regardless, the guy is still very much on top of his game. (Career vs. Mets: .265/.320/.391 line with a 3.64 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, 1.91 K/BB)
