Tonight’s Mets Lineup vs. Marlins

It’s pretty wet outside, but in the event the game is played tonight, here is the lineup the Mets will send to bat against Marlins righthander Josh Johnson:

Jose Reyes SS
Willie Harris 3B
Carlos Beltran RF
Jason Bay LF
Daniel Murphy 1B
Justin Turner 2B
Jason Pridie CF
Ronny Paulino C
Mike Pelfrey P

David Wright is on the DL with a broken back, but luckily we have on-base machine Willie Harris ready to step in at the hot corner. If you recall, Harris reached base four times in his last start.

    People do forget quickly that Willie was on base for every one of Beltran’s 3 homers in Colorado. As long as he keeps it up.

    Looks like a Spring Training line-up.
