Reyes sits again; lineup posted vs. Dodgers.

Jose Reyes took batting practice tonight from both sides of the plate and jogged off the field. It was a positive sign, but not enough for Terry Collins to change his mind.

“To get Reyes for one game tonight or tomorrow and then lose him for three weeks is just stupid,’’ said Collins, not daring for a second to attempt the Jerry Manuel Two-Step when it comes to injures.

The Mets, on the verge of being swept by the Yankees, Sunday, will be going after their third straight victory tonight at Los Angeles.

Here’s tonight’s lineup behind Mike Pelfrey:

Angel Pagan, CF

Justin Turner, 2B

Carlos Beltran, RF

Ronny Paulino, C

Jason Bay, LF

Daniel Murphy, 3B

Ruben Tejada, SS

Lucas Duda, 1B

Mike Pelfrey, RP

Tonight’s Mets lineup at Pittsburgh.

Jason Bay is batting fifth tonight in Pittsburgh, so take that Howard Johnson.

I still like the idea of trying him second to see if the fastball theory behind Jose Reyes has some merit.

Once again, the Mets are poised to reach the .500 mark tonight. Here’s the lineup:

Jose Reyes, SS

Justin Turner, 3B

Carlos Beltran, RF

Angel Pagan, CF

Jason Bay, LF

Ronny Paulino, C

Daniel Murphy, 1B

Ruben Tejada, 2B

Mike Pelfrey, RP
