The Mets host the Braves today at Digital Domain Park at 1:10 pm. They will be wearing their green St. Patrick's Day uniforms. The lineup:

  1. Andres Torres - CF
  2. Daniel Murphy - 2B
  3. Jason Bay - LF
  4. Ike Davis - 1B
  5. Justin Turner - 3B
  6. Mike Baxter - RF
  7. Lucas May - C
  8. Jordany Valdespin - SS
  9. Jon Niese - P

It looks like Terry Collins is sticking to his plan from the end of February:

One of the things we're going to do this spring with our pitching staff is, you know, last spring we DH'd pretty much the entire spring, until maybe the last week. We're only going to DH the first ten days of the exhibition season because our pitchers have got to be comfortable when they get in that batter's box.

Also scheduled to pitch for the Mets today are: Miguel Batista, Jon Rauch, Ramon Ramirez, and Frank Francisco.

Last but not least, the Mets' St. Patrick's Day video.
