Mets Have Opportunity Tonight to Be Behind Only 5 (or 4) Teams in the NL Wild Card Race: Line Up

Tonight the Mets take on the Marlins at 7:10 a the "Citi".  The Mets will send R.A. Dickey to the hill to take on Josh Johnson of the Marlins.  This will not be an easy task for a Mets offense that outside of two games in Pittsburgh has had a tough time providing run support for Dickey (and Santana).  BUT...

Should the Mets be able to pull of the win tonight, they will leapfrog at least one team in the Wild Card standings, because the Marlins are currently a half-game ahead of the Mets in the WC standings.  And, if things break their way, the Mets may actually be able to jump two teams in the WC standings tonight, as they are only a half game behind the Dodgers as well, who are starting a 3 game series in Milwaukee tonight.

Here's tonight's Mets Line-Up courtesy of the Mets on twitter:


Interesting that we're seeing Frenchy in tonight against Johnson instead of Carter, who Manuel mentioned a few days ago would be getting more starts and is a lefty...
