Today’s Mets Lineup
Today’s Mets lineup vs. the Braves in Atlanta:
Jose Reyes – SS
Josh Thole – C
David Wright – 3B
Carlos Beltran – RF
Ike Davis – 1B
Angel Pagan – CF
Willie Harris – LF
Brad Emaus – 2B
Dillon Gee – P
Game time is 1:35 PM and will be broadcast in the New York-metro area on WPIX – WB 11.
This is the first big-league start of the Dillon Gee, the bulldog who showed some promise in September last year.
Note that Josh Thole is in the #2 hole and Willie Harris’ spot in the lineup keeps dropping — along with his batting average, as he’s 5 for his last 21. Also of note: baserunning blunder boy Dan Murphy sits while Brad Emaus starts at second base against righthander Tommy Hanson. Hanson actually was tougher on lefthanded hitters last year — holding them to a .226 AVG — but I think there is another reason for the decision to play Emaus over Murphy.
