Tonight’s Mets Lineup vs. Nationals
Here is the lineup the Mets will send to the plate against Washington Nationals pitcher
and Staten Island native Jason Marquis Yunesky Maya:
I guess Thole is catching because he is the “knuckleball catcher”. Lately Terry Collins can do no wrong so who am I to question his decisions?
In 48 career plate appearances against Marquis, Jason Bay has a .372 batting average with 5 HR and a 1.289 OPS. In other words this is a great pitcher for him to keep his little hot streak going — let’s hope he can finally get in the groove.
Speaking of hot streaks, the flaming hot David Wright has a .406 average and 1.068 OPS in 33 career plate appearances against Marquis. This has the makings of another 8-run outburst by the Mets offense.
