Today’s Mets Lineup vs. Marlins (Game 1)

There are two games today, with the first beginning at 4:10 PM. Here is the lineup the Mets will send to the plate against Marlins pitcher Anibal Sanchez:

Angel Pagan – CF
Ruben Tejada – SS
David Wright – 3B
Lucas Duda – RF
Jason Bay – LF
Nick Evans – 1B
Josh Thole – C
Justin Turner – 2B
R.A. Dickey – P

It seems that Lucas Duda is the team’s everyday right fielder, which is nice to see. With Duda out there, Nick Evans gets some time at 1B, which is also nice. I wonder what R.A. Dickey’s knuckler would have done in a hurricane?
