Jerry has shaken things up again tonight for the game against Atlanta. Chris Carter will start in left field tonight, giving Jason Bay the day off.

Chris Carter Mets debut file

Andrew Mills/The Star-Ledger

The lineup looks like this tonight:

1. SS Jose Reyes

2. 2B Luis Castillo

3. LF Chris Carter

4. 3B David Wright

5. 1B Ike Davis

6. C Rod Barajas

7. CF Angel Pagan

8. RF Jeff Francoeur

9. P Johan Santana

I like:

Rod Barajas being moved up to 6th in the lineup. He has 22 RBIs from the 8th spot in the lineup, not an easy task.

Chris Carter getting another start tonight, and riding his hot bat.

Jose Reyes continuing to be at the top of the lineup.

I don’t like:

Jeff Francoeur batting 8th. He’s been awful of late, and with Johan following him in the lineup, that’s two “easy” outs.

We’ll see how it plays out tonight without Bay in the lineup, first pitch is at 7:10.

Go Mets.
