Open Thread - Game #14: Mets vs. Nationals (04/17/2008)

Will this be the night that Nelson Figueroa turns back into a pumpkin? After a ridiculously good start last time out, Figgy looks to prove that his first start in 47 years wasn't a fluke.

Here's the lineup for the Mets

Jose Reyes,SS
Ryan Church, RF
David Wright, 3B
Carlos Delgado, 1B
Angel Pagan, LF
Brady Clark, CF
Luis Castillo, 2B
Raul Casanova, C
Nelson Figueroa, P

Carlos Beltran is out with a stiff neck. Must be from watching all of those pitches sail by him for walks. Brian Schneider has stunk up the joint against two lefties so far this series so Willie is giving Raul Casanova a crack at John Lannan tonight, also a lefty. When was the last time the Mets faced three lefty starters in a three-game series?
