Tonight’s Mets Lineup vs. Braves
The Mets begin their starring role as spoilers in September with a three-game set against Atlanta. Here is the lineup the Mets will send to bat against Braves pitcher Derek Lowe:
A bit of a lineup juggle, with recently hot Ruben Tejada moving down to the #8 spot to protect Josh Thole. The Menudo member that wasn’t is hitting .320 in his last 7 games, while Pagan is at .240 over the same span. However, Pagan expertly avoided having a ball drop on his foot in centerfield yesterday, so I suppose this is some kind of a reward for that grace under pressure. As a fan, am I allowed to “fold it up”, and if so, how does one execute such a thing?
