The Mets begin a three game homestand tonight against the Cincinnati Reds who have gotten off to a great start this season after winning the NL Central last year.

  2. Rick Ankiel – CF
  3. David Wright – 3B
  4. Lucas Duda – LF
  5. Marlon Byrd – RF
  6. Ike Davis – 1B
  7. John Buck – C
  8. Ruben Tejada – SS
  9. Shaun Marcum – RHP

Daniel Murphy is the hottest player in the Mets lineup right now including 2 homers in the Mets series at Wrigley field. Murph is 14 for his 28 during the last seven games.

  1. Shin-Soo Choo – CF
  2. Cesar Izturis – SS
  3. Joey Votto – 1B
  4. Brandon Phillips – 2B
  5. Jay Bruce – RF
  6. Todd Frazier – 3B
  7. Xavier Paul – LF
  8. Ryan Hanigan – C
  9. Johnny Cueto – RHP

Johnny Cueto is making his first start since the second week of April so he may be on an early pitch count. He has been dealing with oblique injuries and the Reds believe it has something to do with his delievery. It will be interesting to see if Cueto’s mechanics change at all tonight. Also Shin- Soo Choo has been spectatcular for the Reds and we have targeted him as a player the Mets could look at this winter.
