Today’s Mets Lineup vs. Rockies

Here is the lineup the Mets will send to bat this afternoon against Rockies righthander Aneurys Rodriguez:

1. Jose Reyes SS
2. Josh Thole C
3. David Wright 3B
4. Carlos Beltran RF
5. Jason Bay LF
6. Daniel Murphy 1B
7. Justin Turner 2B
8. Jason Pridie CF
9. Chris Capuano P

Thole back in the #2 spot, and Beltran back in the lineup as the cleanup hitter. Interesting to see Pride hitting 8th considering how hot he has been lately. I might prefer to see him and Turner flip-flop since it seems that Turner is slightly more disciplined, and #8 hitters often get less pitches in the strike zone with the pitcher on deck. Of course, I’m nitpicking.

Feel free to comment here during the game (i.e., “in-game thread”).


Mets Game 37: Win Over Rockies

Carlos Beltran 6 Mets 9 Rockies 5

If Carlos Beltran hits three homers and no one is there to see them, do they count?

Carlos Beltran strapped the Mets to his back and carried them to victory over the Colorado Rockies, blasting 3 two-run homers.

Ike Davis? David Wright? Who needs ’em?
