The Mets head to Jupiter today to face the Cardinals at 1:05pm. The game is not on SNY or WFAN but MLB.tv subscribers can listen to Cardinals radio. Johan Santana will start, so hope for velocity and swinging strikes. He plans to reach 80 pitches. Bobby Parnell, Manny Acosta and Miguel Batista are also scheduled to pitch.

Here is the Mets' starting lineup:

1. Jordany Valdespin, 2B
2. Ronny Cedeno, SS
3. Justin Turner, 3B
4. Lucas Duda, RF
5. Valentino Pascucci, 1B
6. Mike Baxter, CF
7. Vinny Rottino, LF
8. Mike Nickeas, C
9. Johan Santana, LHP
