I'll be posting the line-ups today on my way up to Citi Field; I will be posting more pictures and maybe some in-game comments on the blog and/or on twitter (Follow me at: http://twitter.com/#!/LongLiveSheaS)
For those who missed my glowing scouting report of Jordan Zimmermann earlier, here is the link.
Here is my Mets ideal line-up for today (although I don't love 3 lefties in a row with Duda, Murphy and Thole, Duda and Murphy can both be lifted for pinch hitters/defensive replacements if a lefty specialist comes in to face them):
J Reyes SS
A Pagan CF
D Wright 3B
I Davis 1B
C Beltran RF
L Duda LF
D Murphy 2B (Yes, give Emaus a day off and get Murphy's bat in the line-up)
J Thole C
R.A. Dickey takes the mound for the Mets, and he's the guy I'd want on the mound for the Mets right now. He won his first start of the season versus the Marlins (6 innings, 1 unearned run, 3 walks and 7 k's).
I'm going to predict a Mets win solely because I'm going to the game and it's the Mets opener, but I do like J Zimmermann a lot.
LET'S GO METS!
