Tonight’s Mets Lineup vs. Phillies

Here is tonight’s lineup against Phillies lefthander Cliff Lee:

Jose Reyes – SS
Justin Turner – 2B
David Wright – 3B
Carlos Beltran – RF
Jason Bay – LF
Ike Davis – 1B
Ronny Paulino – C
Scott Hairston – CF
Chris Young – P

Hey, who’s that guy in the #7 spot? Name is vaguely familiar … wasn’t he on the Pirates a few years ago? I have a good feeling about Justin Turner tonight, I’m not sure why.

The game will be televised on ESPN, which explains the 8 PM start time. It’s a school night so I guess the kiddies won’t be able to see past the fourth inning.
