Mets 2009 starting lineup

Here's the Mets probable lineup for tomorrow's opener in Cincinnati:

Reyes, ss
Murphy, lf
Wright, 3b
Delgado, 1b
Beltran, cf
Church, rf
Schneider, c
Castillo, 2b
Santana, lhp

Church gets the start in right as the Reds are starting Aaron Harang, a 6'7" righty. Church has never faced Harang, who didn't have the best Spring Training. In 25.2 innings his ERA was 4.56. But that's an improvement over last season when Harang was 6-17 with a 4.78 ERA.

The biggest question mark in the Mets lineup is Castillo. At age 34 and coming off a season in which he hit only .245, 51 points fewer than he hit in 2007, it will be interesting to see how much hitting ability Castillo still has.
