Mets Game 47 vs. Phillies: Lineup

Here is the Mets lineup for tonight’s game vs. the Phillies:

Jose Reyes – SS
Luis Castillo – 2B
Jason Bay – LF
Ike Davis – 1B
David Wright – 3B
Angel Pagan – CF
Rod Barajas – C
Jeff Francoeur – RF
Hisanori Takahashi – LHP

Looks pretty deep, all of a sudden, especially now that Bay is red-hot and Francoeur might be waking from his month-long slumber with the lumber. Takahashi’s soft stuff might keep the Phillies’ bats quiet, considering their problems with the knuckleballers lately.

    Joe Blanton is garbage. But I really love his TV show, "Pawn Stars." I bet he'd give you $500 for an inning ending double play right now.
