Lineup: Mets Game 48 vs. Phillies
Straight from the Mets’ PR Department, tonight’s lineup vs. Cole Hamels and the Phillies:
Jose Reyes – SS
Luis Castillo – 2B
Jason Bay – LF
Ike Davis – 1B
David Wright – 3B
Angel Pagan – CF
Jeff Francoeur – RF
Henry Blanco – C
Mike Pelfrey – RHP
Looks almost exactly like the lineup that’s been working for the past week, except for Hank White.
If this keeps up (and it looks like it should do that) and on top of that throw in Beltran/Murph, it means that this is the team that the Wilpons put together for we, "the fans of the Mets". YAY Freddie/Jeff.
Failing that, I guess it would help to start Chris Carter instead of Jeff Francoeur, and have him bat immediately behind Wright so there is a more dangerous bat giving him some protection. Sadly I guess that is also not to be.
