Mets Take on Braves Tonight at 7:10: Line Up Time

Before the line up it'd be good to take note of some of the reports today.  First, it's coming from all over that R.A. Dickey has a locker with the Mets in Atlanta right now.  I first spotted this on Metsblog, here.  Also, there is apparently a closed door meeting with Manuel, Ricco, Minaya, Wilpon...about here from Metsblog as well.  Wilpon better be throwing down the axe, or at least some ultimatums...

With all that swirling around, tonight's clean up hitter is Chris Carter.  Here's the line up courtesy of the Mets on twitter:

Matthews, Jr.-CF

Couple things here...1) Manuel should be fired simply for playing Gary Matthews. 2) Omar should be fired for still having this guy on the roster, which makes Jerry think it's ok to play him. 3) Frenchy is struggling and it makes sense to play Carter a bit.  I love Frenchy but he's been TERRIBLE lately.  4) I like seeing Bay in the three spot. Hopefully he'll start showing some power with his new found ability to hit the ball...

Pelfrey against Lowe tonight at 7:10...
