Tonight’s Mets Lineup vs. Nationals

Funny, I still have a subconscious urge to type “Expos” when I need to type “Nationals”. Go figure.

Here is tonight’s Mets lineup against Expos Nationals pitcher Livan Hernandez.

Jose Reyes – SS
Daniel Murphy – 2B
David Wright – 3B
Carlos Beltran – RF
Jason Bay – LF
Ike Davis – 1B
Josh Thole – C
Willie Harris – CF
Chris Capuano – P

Looks like the matchup game, with Willie Harris in center. Can’t really argue with that choice, since Harris hasn’t been getting many at-bats lately and you need to keep the bench guys fresh. I might prefer Nickeas behind the plate since he and Capuano worked so well together five days ago, but I guess it’s more important to get Thole’s LH bat in the lineup.
