Tonight’s Mets Lineup vs. Diamondbacks

Here is the lineup the Mets will send to the plate against Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy. Kennedy is 14-3? How did that happen? I wonder if the Yankees wish they still had him rather than, say, Phil Hughes? Though, the guy they got in return — Curtis Granderson — is having an “OK” year.

But I digress. The lineup:

Angel Pagan – CF
Willie Harris – 2B
David Wright – 3B
Lucas Duda – 1B
Jason Bay – LF
Josh Thole – C
Jason Pridie – RF
Ruben Tejada – SS
Dillon Gee – P

Angel Pagan back in the leadoff spot after suffering back spasms. Jason Pridie gets a start in right field. I guess he and Mike Baxter will be part of a three-man platoon with Nick Evans?
