Mets Post Irene Series V. Marlins: Let's Play Two - Mets Lineup V. Marlins - August 29, 2011

Irene has come and gone, Jose Reyes is activated (but won't play in game 1), it's a beautiful day, so the Mets will play two.

After having Saturday's and Sunday's game were cancelled due to the looming Hurricane Irene, it is now time for some baseball. Here on Long Island, we fared fairly well considering the predictions. Those along the south shore of Long Island experienced a lot of flooding, and those further north are dealing with trees and tree limbs all over the place. Many are still without power, but that is to be expected. Thankfully, not many were injured or killed.

As for the Mets, they are coming off a two game winning streak and look to build upon that. I was fortunate to go to Chris Capuano's gem Friday night, and it was great being at the park. I hadn't been to a game since late April, so it was great to go, and even better to see a solid performance from the Mets and Cap.

Today the Mets will play a double header against the Marlins. Game 2 is a make-up for an earlier rain-out .

Jose Reyes was to make his triumphant return to the Mets lineup today, which he still might, but it won't be for game one. Ruben Tejada will get the start at SS in game 1.

Mets game 1 lineup V. Marlins:

1. Pagan CF

2. Tejada SS

3. Wright 3B

4. Duda RF

5. Bay LF

6. Evans 1B

7. Thole C
