Mets vs. Giants-Emotional night on tap

The New York Mets begin a three game series with the San Francisco Giants tonight at Citi Field.  They are the first NY team to play in NY since Osama Bin Laden death, it is sure to be a patriotic and emotional night.  Here are some notes and the lineup.

Mets Lineup:Jose Reyes, Daniel Murphy, David Wright, Carlos Beltran, Ike Davis, Lucas Duda, Josh thole, Jason Pridie, R.A. Dickey.

Lucas Duda was recalled from AAA Buffalo due to Jason Bay going on Paternity leave for 1-3 days.  Duda was batting 257 in AAA with four doubles, three homeruns and nine RBI.  He has had five out of his last eight games be multi-hit games.  Those stats are in 21 games down in AAA.

Jenrry Mejia is off to see Dr. Andrews, most likely he will undergo T.J. surgery in the near future but just wants to make sure.  It is never good when you go and see Dr. Andrews.  The Mets have high hopes for this kid and this was a devastating injury but most are able to come back from the surgery in a year or two and be just as good if not better. 

The Mets will wear special stars and stripes hats tonight.  A source says the Mets will sell a part stake in the team this month.  I will see it when I believe it but they keep saying they have minority investors and they have been moving forward.  It is hard for me to believe anyone will do that without some type of agreement about having a chance to get the whole team. 

The game is at 7:05PM on SNY, enjoy the game everyone and it should be emotional with the patriotic theme, USA USA will be heard going through the crowd, a special national anthem and God Bless America during the seventh inning stretch.  It should be fun to watch at home on T.V. if your not going to the game.
