Series Preview: Giants vs. Mets

In town for a four game series is the New York Mets.

Here are the pitching probables:

  • 7/30 at 7:15 p.m.: Jeremy Hefner (1-4, 5.40) vs. Madison Bumgarner (11-6, 3.10)
  • 7/31 at 7:15 p.m.: Matt Harvey (1-0. 0.00) vs. Tim Lincecum (4-11, 5.80)
  • 8/1 at 7:15 p.m.: Jon Niese (7-5 3.86) vs. Matt Cain (10-3, 2.80)
  • 8/2 at 12:45 p.m.: Chris Young (2-5, 4.58) vs. Barry Zito (8-7, 3.89)

The Giants won’t be facing R.A Dickey, who pitched on Sunday and is scheduled to start again on Friday in San Diego. They won’t be facing Johan Santana, either, who was recently placed on the disabled list. Dillon Gee was also placed on the disabled list this past month.

They will, however, face top prospect Matt Harvey, who was recently called up to take one of the open spots in the rotation. He will be opposed by Tim Lincecum, who is coming off a not-so-stellar start against the Padres last Wednesday. Whether he will be a moldy pumpkin or an ace is still the question.

The trade deadline is also approaching, with the deadline being July 31 at 1:00 p.m. Pacific. The Giants have been linked to Hunter Pence in what may or may not be real reports, though Andrew Baggarly tweeted the following after the original news broke:

So. We’ll see.

In the meantime: play ball.
