Tonight’s Mets Lineup vs. Reds

Here is the lineup the Mets will send to the plate against Cincinnati Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto:

Jose Reyes – SS

Carlos Beltran – RF

Dan Murphy – 1B
Jason Bay – LF
Ronny Paulino – C
Jason Pridie – CF
Jonathon Niese – P

Angel Pagan is still feeling symptoms of exhaustion; this sounds more serious than an issue with the heat. He might need a change of diet or something. I wonder if this has something to do with his poor performance of late?
