MLB Preview Of The Week Series

MLB Preview Of The Week Series
The National League is already in high gear thanks to reshaped divisions and players yearning to overcome last years shortcomings. The National League West and the East are both off to intriguing starts that have indicated it will be a season long battle in these divisions.

NL Series Of The Week

Two particular series to check out this week in the National League are important for different reasons. The New York Mets will be featured in interleague play against the Cleveland Indians in a matchup that the Mets are looking to sweep after a rough start to season.

On the West coast, an early season divisional showdown between the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers will see the reshaped pitching staffs go head to head for the first this season.

San Francisco Bumgarner

 

San Francisco Giants vs Los Angeles Dodgers

This series is going to be about the pitching so you are safe betting the under no matter the odds. Madison Bumgarner taking the hill against Clayton Kershaw is a pitchers duel that will set the tone for the weekend and will see both starters go deep into the ball game. It's Johnny Cueto facing off against Scott Kazmir and Jeff Samardzija vs 28 year old newcomer Kenta Maeda.

Maeda boasts a WHIP under one (.92) to Smardzija's 1.43. Every pitcher in the series boasts a low WHIP, so each game should be low scoring. 

This series is sure to be filled with many 0's and maybe the best pitchers duel of the year as Bumgarner and Kershaw face off.

New York Mets vs Cleveland Indians 

The New York Mets and Cleveland Indians will face off in a series that will prove how good the Mets can be on the road. The Mets were a strong road team last season, their ability to grind out wins away from home was one of the prime reasons why they won the division. 

The series kicks off with the second start of the season for both Cody Anderson and Bartolo Colon in a matchup that will most likely see the Mets to break out of their scoring slump.

Matt Harvey and Steven Matz will also be searching for their first wins on the season, and it's hard to imagine them going any further without picking up a win. The Mets are in dire need of a sweep and we think that's a distinct possibility against Corey Kluber (4.85 ERA) and Josh Tomlin. 

The cause for concern for the Mets is that their young pitchers. The Mets have the worst batting average in the league at .185 and have looked far different from the team that swept Chicago last year in the NLCS. Let's see if they can right the ship in Cleveland.
