The Mets start a 3 game set against the Nationals tonight. Johan Santana who didn’t make it out of the 2nd inning last weekend gets the start. Johan who just back from his stint on the DL will have to prove that he can still get it done. Love the guy and I am hoping he isnt injured and is able to get back a little of his mo jo because he really look defeated after last weeks shalacking which yours truly saw in person.
Here is the lineup with Ike Davis taking a seat and Murphy playing 1st.
Tejada SS, Torres CF, Wright 3B, Hairston RF, Murphy 1B, Cedeno 2B, Bay LF, Shoppach C, Santana LHP
Side note- Since the Giants are down a OF will they entertain a trade for Hairston? Per Adam Rubin Hairston has not been placed on waivers as of yet.
