    Alou will be back playing Friday

    No fracture for Alou

    Left fielder Moises Alou does not have a fractured ankle and is scheduled to be activated by the Mets on Friday. Alou is in the clubhouse today and speaking to reporters at the moment. Catcher Brian Schneider, however, is still in the hospital with that staph infection. More details (and the lineups) to come ...

    Poor Schneider, that sounds serious, I can't believe he is still in the hospital.

    Staph infections can be really serious. Ironically, most of the times you get them while in the hospital. Hopefully he's out of there soon.

    Wow some good news for a change, getting Alou back feels almost like a luxury.

    What will the line-up look like with Alou in it. Do we stick him behind Church and bat Alou 6th?

    To me there's 2 lineup options

    A) Reyes - S
    Church - L
    Wright - R
    Beltran - S
    Alou - R
    Delgado - L
    Castillo - S
    Schneider - L
    Pitcher

    B) Reyes - S
    Castillo - S
    Wright - R
    Beltran - S
    Church - L
    Alou - R
    Delgado - L
    Schneider - L
    Pitcher

    Either one works for me.

    its gonna be B guaranteed.

    willie likes Louie in the 2 spot, he also loses a lot of value anywhere but two.

    Probably. I like Castillo 2nd as long as he's getting on base at a .360 or so clip. Church 2nd wasn't bad either though....but I think it comes down to Church having more value lower in the order then Castillo does. Church has been one of our best RBI guys. Batting him 5th puts him in alot more RBI spots.

    if castillo isnt batting 2nd he bats 8th IMO

    clear the picthers spot and has the speed to be bunted over if he gets on with less than 2 outs with probably a better succes rate than the slower schnieder

    There's more benefit to be gained from Castillo breaking up the Lefties then there are for batting Castillo 8th to 'clear the pitchers spot' IMO. You're forgetting that Schneider isn't bad at OBP himself, right now he's at .391, although you expect him to drop closer to .330 or so by the time the years over, but that's only about 3% off from what Castillo normally does.

    You sure we can't convince Willie to bat Castillo 9th?

    I only wish

    Anyone notice how with the game on the line last night, one out runner on third, the Bucs walked Reyes to get to Castillo. I kind of got sick right there that our 2nd hole cant get a sac fly. Luckily he drew a walk and Wright got the job done...still pretty scary though...but we all better get used to it.
