Starting Lineup Ruben Tejada – SS Andres Torres – CF David Wright – 3B Scott Hairston – RF Jason Bay – LF Ike Davis – 1B Ronny Cedeno – 2B Mike Nickeas – C Miguel Batista – RHP The Mets suffered a disappointing loss last night as they dropped the series opener 7-6 to the Dodgers. They look to move past it this afternoon as they take on the Dodgers and Chris Capuano behind Miguel Batista. As a quick side note. Could you imagine if the rolls were reversed and the Mets were playing at 10 AM local time? Odd. Anyway… Miguel Batista’s (and more specifically Matt Harvey’s) future role on this team depends on his start today. If he is mediocre to good, then he most likely stays for at least the rest of the month. If he is terrible, he probably forces the Mets hand to make a move. On the season Batista is 1-2 on the season over 29 games and 43.2 innings of work with an ERA of 4.33. His last outing was in DC where he allowed 2 ER against the Nationals over 0.2 innings of work. In 0.2 innings
