I hope that this is the lineup for all games against RHPs. Milledge is improving but he needs to learn how to hit off-speed pitching and, as we saw last night, is mistake prone. I’m not saying that Shawn Green is his former self but I feel more comfortable with him in a big spot than Milledge. Lastings will have his chance but it should be after the Mets win the Series!
what the??!! delgado got the 5 spot again????
he must have pulled out the pictures again..
I can deal with Green in against the RHP, but if the guy throws 95+ I’d want Lastings back in there…the kid can catch up to most FB’s so long as he doesn’t swing at the high one.
I”m guessing it will be Delgado at the 5 against righties and the 6 against lefties.
BH its should be 6 against righties and 7 against lefties.
Steve C : I say let Delgado have his shot to prove that the monkey is off his back with that hit on Saturday. Again, I think Carlos has been getting a bum rap considering he had a great July and was doing well in August until he got injured. For better or for worse if the Mets are to go far in the Postseason, we need a hot Delgado IMO.
yes but he hasnt even really been warm let alone HOT. and one HIT doesnt make him number 5. He has killed more rallies than he has helped with the one HIT. But fine. Its a losing battle, he’s this years golden child and needs to be pampered and protected. Every season or 2 we have one player that the manager shields and defends for some unknown ungodly reason :-\
Steve C: I think you are really focusing on the AB’s between him getting injured and coming back. The bigger picture was that he was 5 for 11 before getting hurt, and he had that big July. The Mets need him to get hot. I see no reason why he shouldn’t be back to 5th against a righty.
It really doesnt matter who bats when as long as everyone its and the Mets win!
Lets Go! Mets Go!
I am glad Castillo is back and Carlos should come up after Alou.
Also Lastings should not be benched. We will need him in the post season and he needs to learn now. But as JD has said before, Green also needs to play.
