Here’s tonight’s batting order for the Mets against Philadelphia:
Curtis Granderson, rf: I don’t want him here, but he’s among the leaders in walks which gives him a healthy on-base percentage.
David Wright, 3b: Still think he should hit third, but he’s hitting and that’s what counts. He’ll stay here for awhile.
Lucas Duda, 1b: His stroke seems a lot shorter and quicker. He’s poised for another big year.
Michael Cuddyer, lf: I like him behind Duda.
Daniel Murphy, 2b: I understand the idea of wanting to give him more RBI opportunities, but it’s not happening right now.
Travis d’Arnaud, c: Probably the hottest hitting Met right now.
Juan Lagares, cf: I want to see him batting leadoff, but average and on-base percentage says he doesn’t deserve hitting first.
Wilmer Flores, ss: He’s probably under the most pressure to get going. His approach seems better the past few days.
Matt Harvey, rhp: Don’t you get the impression from him that he should not only pitch, but hit clean-up like the typical high school star?
