The Mets lineup display is a bit wonky (damn you, data provider!). Perhaps the machines are as surprised as we are that Moises Alou is making his season debut tonight in Arizona. He should be slotted in between Carloses Beltran and Delgado, the power righty bat to play the meat in a sucktacular Puerto Rican sandwich.
With the early game on Wednesday and the late game tonight, it feels like the Mets haven't played in a week. Micah Owings is on the hill for the Diamondbacks, and he would probably be batting sixth in the Mets' lineup were he pitching for us instead. John Maine has had three pretty solid games in a row, even if he is still walking a few more batters than he should.
