Tonight’s lineup vs. Marlins

I would have thought Jerry Manuel would have rewarded Luis Castillo for last night, but it’s not happening.

Here’s tonight’s lineup:

Jose Reyes, SS

Angel Pagan, LF

Carlos Beltran, CF

David Wright, 3B

Ike Davis, 1B

Jeff Francoeur, RF

Josh Thole, C

Ruben Tejada, 2B

Pat Misch, LP

  1. we have been asking for young / home grown. ruben is the man. Luis will be platooned and come in for the tight spots.
    plus he may be hurting. they did take him off DL quickly.

  2. FYI-

    pregame.. Bobby O. thinks Tejada should be in Triple A. he;s a gifted athlete but he needs to get the offense going and also understand playing second base.

    I think M&M plucked Ruben too soon from the minor leagues, worse than that put him in an unnatural position.
    Oh well . i am not the manager.

  3. ruben came up out of necessity.

    he has done well at 2nd. i dont recall him screwing up because of unfamiliarity.

    he also plays a better d there than castillo who is an old hand. so i am not worried about the d to much.

    ruben’s bat is weak. it wasnt strong in the minors and is weak up here.

    i dont think he will be the starter next year for that very reason.
