Congratulations Jason Bay; Paulino Starts, Thole Sits: Mets Lineup V Giants - May 4, 2011
On a positive note, Jason Bay and his wife Kristen gave birth last night to a son: Garrett David Bay.
Josh Thole, who has be abysmal behind the dish this year, have 7 passed balls, and countless runners steal a base at will, along with an under-achieving .256 batting average, is getting the night off.
In his stead, Ronny Paulino will get the start. Paulino, in his first start, had five hits, and is batting a robust .556. Granted, it's only 9 AB's, but it is still positive nonetheless.
Tonight's Mets drenched lineup is:
1. Reyes - SS
2. Murphy - 2B
3. Wright - 3B
4. Beltran - RF
5. Davis - 1B
6. Paulino - C
7. Harris - LF
8. Pridie - CF
9. Capuano - LSP
