Here’s the line-up from the team that has scored two runs in its last four games.
SS Jose Reyes
LF Endy Chavez
3B David Wright
CF Carlos Beltran
1B Carlos Delgado
RF Shawn Green
2B Ruben Gotay
C Mike DiFelice
P Orlando Hernandez
Not the greatest looking lineup. Rests to Castillo, LoDuca and Alou.
Well all El Duque has to do is throw a no-hitter. No problem!
you know I have no problem with this lineup here’s why..
1. Lastings Milledge: I wanted him to start all year but now that he has been given a chance you see how far away he really is.. He can’t hit the breaking ball, and the bigger problem is he refuses to go the other way. Every pitch is an outside breaking ball yet everytime he trys to put it over the LF fence.
2.Mosies Alou: isn’t hot anymore, and when he comes up with a man on first you know he’s going to ground into a double play. I think it was the 7th inning last night Wright took a walk and I was pretty upset because at that point if the Mets were going to score it was because of David Wright, and you just knew with 1 out Alou was going to ground into a double play.
3.Luis Castillo: You can tell his knee isn’t near 100% and it’s really affecting his offense. I would of liked to seen Marlon Anderson get the start at 2B though.
I’ve got no problem with the lineup. Glad to see Gotay get a start. Beltran batting .542 lifetime with 4 homers against Lohse by the way.
Would they be better off with Anderson in left than Chavez?
Dan: Why would they? Righty pitcher and Endy needs to start swinging the bat. He is the 4th OF you know.
Dan: I hope that was a joke. Chavez is, by far, the best defensive OF’er the Mets have. Plus his speed in the 2 hole behind Reyes could prove to be the spark they need.
ppl seem to forget Endy started a lot of games last year and besides player stellar D also had a good bat. No power, but we should have enuf of that in the lineup.
I am sure El Duque will appreciate what he brings to the field. Much better to have him than converted infielders. Besides Willie needs to give him playing time because we will need him later.
Glad to see Gotay get a swing too.
