Subway Series Take II: Mets Seek To Even Score V. Yanks: Mets Lineup Vs. Yankees - June 9, 2012
The Mets were taken down a peg last night by the Yankees in an embarrassing performance by Johan Santana and his mates.
Tonight the Mets look for revenge as Dillion Gee opposes Phil Hughes.
Once again Lucas Duda will DH and Captain Kirk will patrol RF, as the injured Omar Quintanilla will start at SS.
Last night's game isn't as cataclysmic as the sports papers and stations would have you believe; Johan Santana hasn't fared well against the Yankees, and the Mets came out flat. Tonight is a new day and a new game. Does anyone really believe there is a rivalry between these two franchises? I would much rather see the Mets wallop the Marlins, Phillies, Braves and Nats because those teams are the Mets rivals; not their intra city counterpart from the AL.
I would rather see the NL play the AL in the World Series than via inter-league play, but that's just one man's opinion.
All that being said, tonight's Mets lineup Vs. the Yankees:
1. Kirk Nieuwenhuis - RF
2. Andres Torres CF
3. David Wright 3B
4. Lucas Duda - DH
5. Daniel Murphy - 2B
6. Ike Davis - 1B
7. Jason Bay - LF
8. Josh Thole - C
9. Omar Quintanilla - SS
