Niese & His New Nose Gets The Start; Mets Go For Sweep: Mets Lineup V. Braves April 8, 2010

The Mets are off to a nice start, only allowing two runs in their first two games, and look to sweep the Braves to start the 2012 season.

Mike Nickeas and Scott Hairston will get their first start since the Mets will be facing lefty Mike Minor, and Terry Collins has chosen the two righthanded bats for CF and Catcher.

Jon Niese will make his first start of 2012. Let's hope Niese gets off to a good start. I'm sure the young lefty will be feeling pressure after signing his 5 year $25.5M contract, but he must keep in mind that this is a five year deal, not a five start deal.

Today's Mets lineup:

1. Tejada - SS
2. Murphy - 2B
3. Wright - 3B
4. Davis - 1B
5. Bay - LF
6. Duda - RF
7. Hairston - CF
8. Nickeas - C
9. Niese - LSP
