Tonight’s Mets Lineup vs. Braves

Here is the lineup the Mets will send to bat against Braves pitcher Mike Minor:

Jose Reyes – SS
Justin Turner – 3B
Carlos Beltran – RF
Daniel Murphy – 1B
Jason Bay – LF
Ronny Paulino – C
Scott Hairston – CF
Ruben Tejada – 2B
R.A. Dickey – P

Nice to see Justin “Mr. RBI” Turner back in the lineup. Also nice to see Scott Hairston get a start in centerfield against the lefty; he must be getting rusty. I know Angel Pagan is red-hot but it’s not the worst thing in the world to give him a day off to rest the legs.
