Herd strikeout king Gee starts tonight for Mets

Dillon Gee will never be confused for Johan Santana but he will replace the Mets' ace in the rotation tonight at Washington and you can watch the game at 7 p.m. on SNY. Santana is dealing with a pectoral muscle strain. 

Gee, who won 13 games and struck out a franchise-record 165 batters for the Bisons this season, will be opposing Washington rookie and Cuban defector Yunesky Maya. It will mark the first time in Mets history two pitchers making their big-league debuts will oppose each other.

Here's an clip of Gee talking to reporters Monday about his chance to start and his penchant for strikeouts this season in Buffalo, where he was named the Bisons' Comeback Player of the Year.
