The Mets are in first place in the NL East, the only team over .500 so far this season. Atlanta looks to try and bridge the gap this weekend.
Atlanta just split a couple of game wth Boston and is 11-11 on the road. They are one of the best offensive teams in the Majors and nobody has hit more home runs.
Ian Anderson started the season slow but has been much better in May. He is looking more like the arm that helped the team get into the playoffs last season as a rookie.
The deeper he can work into the game the better because the Braves bullpen is not a strength. Especially in the middle innings. That is one of the reasons the Braves need to score a lot to win.
New York Mets
The Mets are in first place but you have to wonder for how long given how bad their offense is. Pete Alonso and Michael Conforto are out and Francisco Lindor is hitting under .200 again. Where are the runs going to come from?
Taijuan Walker was pitching really well before a recent stint on the injured list. The guy has always had the arm talent but never been able to make a breakthrough. I am iffy about backing him off the injury even though he wasn’t out long.
A good bullpen backs up a strong group of starters, that is how the Mets are leading the division so far. Trevor May was a smart addition/investment. They are getting more from him than Lindor. Go figure.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
Atlanta is the play in the series opener. I like what I am seeing from Anderson and worry that Walker might be a little limited in his first start back.
Anderson gets the easy task of taming the Mets lineup. There is not there right now, hence the low total.
