Lineup Check: Mets

Manager Jerry Manuel has a lot of decisions to make with his 2010 New York Mets lineup. With Carlos Beltran out until late May, and most of the lineup either coming back from poor or injury filled seasons in 2009, there are a lot of questions. Will Jose Reyes be the .300/20/50 (AVG., HR., SB.) he was a couple of years ago, or will he be the Reyes we saw last year? Will Jason Bay be the same person he was on the Boston Red Soxs? Now for David Wright. We know, and I think he knows, what he has to do this season, which is to be a leader of this very poor Mets team. Not only does he have to be the leader, he also have to preform to the most of his ability. I am very curious to see how the Mets organization deals with all of these issues. I say "the Mets organization" because I do not think Jerry is calling ALL of the shots this season.

Here is my 2010 Mets Lineup Prediction:

  1. Reyes
  2. Castillo (Eventually Murphy)
  3. Wright
  4. Bay
  5. Murphy (Eventually Beltran)
  6. Francoeur
  7. Matthews/Pagan/Castillo
  8. Santos (or whoever is catching)
  9. Pitcher
This would put the Mets in the best position to compete in the very tough NL East, but you know the Mets, things are bound to change and the lineup with end up being different every game.
