Citi Field 5

2014 Opening Day lineup

Here’s the Mets’ 2014 Opening Day lineup:

  1. Eric Young Jr. – 2B
  2. Juan Lagares – CF
  3. David Wright – 3B
  4. Curtis Granderson – RF
  5. Andrew Brown – LF
  6. Ike Davis – 1B
  7. Travis d’Arnaud – C
  8. Ruben Tejada – SS
  9. Dillon Gee – RHP

Brown will start in left field, with Chris Young out with a right quad strain, Collins said.

Young Jr. will start at second base, as Daniel Murphy’s wife went into labor Monday morning.

Four or five Mets are also battling the flu, Collins said.

Jason, I hope you went to watch something else! Patrick, I'll take a train wreck over fans like you. You are such experts. Just become fans of another team, would you please.

This team is going to waste nearly David Wright's entire career.  Depressing.

I thought Terry was going to bat the pitcher 8th? When I look at the lineup I can't say I am very confident :{ The Nats seem to have a much better line up than the METS do ? We will see, it's a long season. I have my MLBTV all set and I am getting out of work early to watch the game :} LETS GO METS!!

So any credibility to signing Bobby Abreu ? Is this a possibility

For everybody who wants to boycott this team based on the Wilpon-Madoff connection, I hope you all bank at your local credit union, avoid coca-cola products, eat vegetarian, boycott Amazon and make your own shoes, because there are far more reprehensible business practices out there. 


I do what I can to make ethical choices in the marketplace and actually put sweat equity into creating a more just society, but on the list of things I cannot support on ethical grounds the Mets franchise is a pretty low priority. Furthermore, if we hired a forensic accountants to look at the finances of every owner I don't think we'd find too many angels out there. But perhaps there is an owner out there who hasn't done anything unethical and you can go root for their team?


That being said: LET'S GO METS!

Tejada is going to go 3-4 with 2 RBI's and Ike is gonna hit a bomb....because the Mets on opening day are just silly. Remember Colin Cowgill GRAND SLAM last year?!?

Ike, Grandy and Dillon will be the keys to a Mets win today.  They have to do work.

This looks like an extremely competitive triple-A team.

Are the Mets bringing anyone up on the so called "Taxi squad" for Murph ?

Hey get the Injuries out of the way and absents of the line up now, We have 161 more games left!!! Better now than later

Meet the Mets.  Meet the Mets. Step right up and greet the Mets. Bring your kiddies bring your Wife. Guaranteed to have the time of your life. Because the Mets are really socking the ball. Knocking those homeruns over the wall. East side West side. Everybody's coming down. To greet the  M  E  T  S   Mets  of New York town!

That lineup looks like it's good for about 2000 strikeouts.

Well, there's the answer to weeks of debate.  Your starting LF on opening day will be Andrew Brown, so you can slide him right into your fantasy baseball lineups today.

The over/under is the 6th inning for when Mets fans are completely fed up with Tejada and insist that Sandy sign Drew and have him ready to pinch hit in the 9th

Guess we're going to have to wait a few more days to see who won the CF spot.

SOME HOW THEY ARE GONNA WIN THIS GAME

If CY injury not serious and no one else gets hurt, who will go when Niese is activated?  I say Duda or Davis.  Roster is not deep enough to carry a marginal pinch hitter who plays only 1 position.

I like the lineup with EYJ at 2nd. Wish TC would at least consider that full-time with Murph at first base.

@Ben Russak  This is a straw man. Nobody is delusional enough to expect a paragon of ethical exceptionalism out of their team's owner. How about putting a good product on the field and having a well run organization that isn't profusely incompetent and involved in ponzi schemes that cripple the franchise? Is that asking too much?

@Chris  you were doing ok until the hitting a bomb part. Being positive is one thing....being off the wall is another

@Bill Young The collective fanbase of the Washington Nationals all just said "Who the hell are these guys?"

I think its Brown and we start seeing Duda in LF again on occasion.

@eric88 @archer41  This was supposed to be the turnaround season.  They could easy win less games than last year.  I have little enthusiasm for this season.  I hope I'm wrong.

@Bill Young do personal attacks on a mets blog make you feel better about yourself?

@jose_who @Bill Young @Bob Burket  I'm here because I do like them. You're the enabler guy who gives his alcoholic son money to live in his dumpster apartment.
