Murphy To Make First Start At 2B, Dickey Gets The Start; Mets Lineup Vs. Marlins Sunday April 3, 2011
Brad Emaus, the 25 year old Rule 5 pick of the Mets, and starting second baseman already needs the day off after playing two consecutive games, and Daniel Murphy will get his first professional start at second base.
I hope Terry Collins doesn't manage the Mets the way Bobby Valentine did, where many of the regulars (like Piazza) would always have Sunday off. At 25 and with two pro games under his belt, there is no way Emaus should get a blow.
RA Dickey will make his first start of 2011, coming off a surprising 11-9 with a 2.84 ERA in the 2010 season. The Mets will look for Dickey's multiple knuckle balls to baffle the Marlins today.
