 Jerry Manuel finally made the move he's been looking to make since the start of spring training, dropping Jose Reyes to third in the Mets' batting order for tonight's game against the Braves. Angel Pagan is leading off and Jason Bay is batting number 4 in the lineup. Reyes adds speed and power to the middle of the batting order. The Mets are looking for more runs.
