Game 36. Mets @ Marlins

Here is the line-up that will face RHP Anibal Sanchez:

Angel Pagan, CF
Luis Castillo, 2B
Jose Reyes, SS
Jason Bay, LF
David Wright, 3B
Ike Davis, 1B
Jeff Francoeur, RF
Rod Barajas, C
Oliver Perez, LHP

So the line-up did not change tonight.

My prediction: My feelings haven't changed from last night, and the Mets will lose 7-2 and extend their losing streak to three games.

Here was a great stat I saw from Eric Simon of ESPN New York.
Through the 20-inning game:

.381 BA, .714 Slug pct, 1.165 OPS, 4 K, 7 BB

Since Then

.150 BA, .225 Slug Pct, .430 OPS, 19 K, 3 BB

That's worrisome stuff right now, and what's worse is this: Since that 20-inning game, Francoeur has more strikeouts (19) than total bases (18).

FYI, that game versus the Cardinals was April 17th, or four weeks from tomorrow. And the Mets continually trot a guy out there who has hit worse than most pitchers over the past month.
