Another day, another lineup for the Mets. It’s now 22 different lineups going into Game No. 26. It’s not as if Collins can’t make up his mind, but that he’s trying to juggle what little options he has remaining to him.
Ruben Tejada, SS: One of six Mets to lead off.
Daniel Murphy, 2B: Back at second after hitting third and fifth. Doubled yesterday to break a 1-for-21 slide.
David Wright, 3B: Says stiff neck feels better.
John Buck, C: Hit nine homers with 25 RBI in April.
Lucas Duda, LF: On-base percentage is good; RBI total is low.
Marlon Byrd, RF: Has double digit RBI.
Ike Davis, 1B: Batting seventh because he can’t go much lower.
Juan Lagares, CF: Has done little with his cup of coffee.
Dillon Gee, RHP: Tries to snap six-game losing streak.
