Tonight’s lineup at Cincinnati

Here’s the Mets’ lineup tonight at Cincinnati with R.A. Dickey on the mound:

Jose Reyes, SS

Justin Turner, 2B

Carlos Beltran, RF

David Wright, 3B

Daniel Murphy, 1B

Jason Bay, LF

Josh Thole, C

Jason Pridie, CF

R.A. Dickey, RP

COMMENTS: No surprises.  Terry Collins once floated the idea of batting Bay second behind Reyes with the hope of seeing more fastballs, but nothing became of it.  Bay is still mired in the sixth spot in the order where he continues to struggle.

Mets’ lineup today vs. Yankees.

What a difference the lineup looks this afternoon without Jose Reyes at shortstop and at the top of the order. The Mets will attempt to avoid a sweep by the Yankees with this order:

Justin Turner, 2B

Carlos Beltran, RF

Daniel Murphy, 3B

Jason Bay, LF

Lucas Duda, 1B

Josh Thole, C

Ruben Tejada, SS

R.A. Dickey, RP

Tonight’s Mets’ lineup at Detroit.

The .500 New York Mets are in Detroit tonight to face the Tigers behind knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.

Here’s the lineup:

 

Jose Reyes, SS

Willie Harris, DH

Carlos Beltran, RF

Daniel Murphy, 3B

Angel Pagan, CF

Jason Bay, LF

Lucas Duda, 1B

Justin Turner, 2B

Josh Thole, C

R.A. Dickey, RP

COMMENTS and NOTES: I’d still like to see if Jason Bay can right himself hitting second in the order. There’s nothing to lose. … Tonight is Jose Reyes’ 1,000th career game. The only player with more steals and triples in his first 1,000 games since 1898 is Ty Cobb.
