Here is the line-up that will face Justin Verlander (be sure to check out his thorough scouting report from earlier today):
J Reyes SS
A Pagan CF
D Wright 3B
I Davis 1B
J Bay LF
R Barajas C
J Francoeur RF (yes he's still terrible versus righties, as evident by his .299 career OBP, yet he still plays every darn day. Thanks Jerry)
R Tejada 2B
J Niese P
My Prediction: Mets offense can only muster one run, and while Niese throws well, he just can't match Verlander, and the Mets lose 3-1.
As always, LET'S GO METS! (and prove me wrong).
As far as a prediction for the three game series, I think the Mets will win 2 of 3.
