6 Game Home Stand Starts Off Tonight, Here's the Line Up

Tonight the Mets start a 6 game home stand where they will welcome the Giants and then Nationals to the "Citi".

After a solid start to the previous road trip the Mets ended up a disappointing 2-4 on the swing.  Well now it's time for some home cooking, which will hopefully get the Mets back on the right track.  The first two games of this Giants series is important considering the final game they will face, arguably the best pitcher in the NL, Tim Lincecum.

The Mets try to get it started tonight with this line up, courtesy of the team on twitter:

The Usual-2B

A few interesting things to note here. 1) Ike Davis has been dropped a spot in the order, probably some combination of what both he and Francoeur have been doing lately, as there is a lefty on the hill for the Giants.  2) Rod Barajas is starting as the catcher for Pelfrey for the first in a while.  This probably has something to do with making it known that Blanco is the back-up, while also taking note of how bad Pelf's last start was.

Hopefully the team will right the ship tonight, and Pelfrey's Philly outing will prove to just be a hiccup....
