The Mets travel to Disney World to battle the Braves at 1:05pm today. The game is not on SNY or WFAN but the Braves' radio broadcast can be heard on MLB.tv. For the sake of would-be Mets fan listeners, hopefully the Braves' radio announcers are nothing like their television counterparts.

Dillon Gee takes the hill for the second time this spring, following his two-inning, one-run performance against the Nats on Monday. Also scheduled to pitch are Matt Harvey, Chuck James, Josh Stinson and Garrett Olson. Here is Terry Collins' starting lineup:

Ruben Tejada, SS
Josh Thole, C
Daniel Murphy, 2B
Valentino Pascucci, 1B
Kirk Nieuwenhuis, CF
Adam Loewen, LF
Juan Lagares, RF
Mike Baxter, DH
Ronny Cedeno, 3B

And the Braves' starting lineup:

Andrelton Simmons, SS
Martin Prado, DH
Brian McCann, C
Dan Uggla, 2B
Chipper Jones, 3B
Eric Hinske, 1B
Jason Heyward, RF
Stefan Gartrell, LF
Todd Cunningham, CF

Randall Delgado is the Braves' starting pitcher.
