Subway Series: Quintanilla's Finger Fractured, Bay Feeling Better, Johan Goes For Third Complete Game In A Row; Mets Lineup Vs. Yankees - June 8, 2012


Tonight kicks off my least favorite time of year, The Subway Series. As I have lamented before, I don't care for inter-league play nor the subway series. It is a profitable series for baseball, but there is no real rivalry between the Mets and the Yankees.

It has been reported that Omar Quintanilla has a small fracture in his left index finger, but plans on playing through it.

Jason Bay will return to the Mets lineup tonight.EASY! that loud roar of approval was deafening! Bay has missed much of this season due to a busted rib sustained making a diving attempt at a sinking line drive. His return was delayed due to a bad reaction he had from an antibiotic he was taking. Hopefully Bay can break out of his 2 1/2 year slump.

No-Han Santana will be making his first start since throwing a No-No last Friday night. Santana has two complete games in a row, and is looking for his third.

Tonight's Mets Lineup:

1.  Nieuwenhuis - CF
2.  Thole - C
3.  Wright - 3B
4.  Duda - DH
5.  Murphy - 2B
6.  Hairston - RF
7.  Davis - 1B
8.  Bay - LF
9.  Quintanilla - SS

Johan Santana - LSP
