The Colorado Rockies and New York Mets face off in the Big Apple for a mid-week, four-game series that will surely be a challenge for the visiting ball club.

The Colorado Rockies are off to New York, their only trip this year to the Big Apple, to face a surprisingly decent team in the New York Mets. And they’ll get the Mets for four games this go-round, which means the Rox will see every starter in the Mets’ solid rotation except Bartolo Colon. Which actually makes me sad.

Anyways, the Mets are surprising the league right now, in part because of their great pitching staff, so this series might be similar to the one the Rockies just caught in Washington: great pitchers that shut down a ball club and make for a very long series.

So, now up: the New York Mets. As always, here are your probable pitchers, so strap in for a long four-game, mid-week series before the Rockies come back home and face the San Diego Padres in Denver.
