Here is the lineup the Mets will send to the plate against Reds guitarist / pitcher Bronson Arroyo:
Carlos Beltran is not in the lineup because he is most likely going to be with the San Francisco Giants shortly. Let’s see if Lucas Duda can fill his shoes and if Jason Bay can get on track already. It will be somewhat interesting to see how Mike Pelfrey pitches in this game, considering his comments earlier this week. Will he be mentally throwing in the towel?
