Beltran Out Of Lineup, Pelf Looks To Shutdown Phils: Mets Lineup V. Phillies - July 17, 2011
Carlos Beltran is still feeling under the weather, and will once again sit in today's matinee finale against the Phillies.
Scott Hairston has been rewarded for his career best day, and will start in RF and bat third (yeah right!).
Ronny Paulino, who has become Big Pelf's personal catcher, will once again be calling pitches behind the dish for the anxious right hander. Paulino has been getting more starts due to the poor play of Josh Thole, and deservedly so. Paulino's experience has seemed to be a calming force for Pelfrey.
Today's Mets lineup V. Phillies at 1:10:
