Mets Starting Lineup Vs. Giants

The Mets will attempt to regain their footing this afternoon behind this lineup and Mike Pelfrey:

Kirk Nieuwenhuis, cf

Daniel Murphy, 2b

David Wright, 3b

Ike Davis, 1b

Jason Bay, lf

Lucas Duda, rf

Josh Thole, c

Ruben Tejada, ss

Mike Pelfrey, rhp

LINEUP COMMENTS: For the most part, Terry Collins’ lineup has been consistent. I like Kirk Nieuwenhuis in the leadoff spot and beginning to think he’s a keeper.


One thought on “Mets Starting Lineup Vs. Giants

  1. Capt Kirk is a keeper. Don’t know if he will turn into our every day CF or OF. But certainly he is a major league OF. He has been a good doubles hitter in the minors and is consistently described as above avg tools. He is not great, but he seems to be fundamentally sound which is not something we can say about all our players.

    Mike had a good day. I was able to catch his first inning. He did well but had problems with the last hitter.
