Ramirez, Uggla Not in Lineup, Bonifacio at 2B

          NEW YORK -- Hanley Ramirez remains out of the lineup, not surprisingly, with his bruised right hand and wrist. He'll have company in the dugout for a matinee showdown of two stud pitchers, Josh Johnson and Johan Santana. Dan Uggla and his 1 for 17 lifetime figure against the Mets ace receives his first day off this season.  Emilio Bonifacio slides over to second, though it should be noted that he hasn't done a whole lot better than Uggla when facing Santana. He is 0 for 8 against the star lefty. Wes Helms will play third.

         Carlos Delgado (hip) and Luis Castillo (back spasms) remain out of the lineup for the Mets.

         Marlins: 1. Emilio Bonifacio, 2b; 2. Cameron Maybin, cf; 3. Wes Helms, 3b; 4. Jorge Cantu, 1b; 5. Jeremy Hermida, lf; 6. Ronny Paulino, c; 7. Cody Ross, rf; 8. Alfredo Amezaga, ss; 9. Josh Johnson, p.

         Mets: 1. Jose Reyes, lf; 2. Alex Cora, 2b; 3. Daniel Murphy, lf; 4. Carlos Beltran, cf; 5. David Wright, 3b; 6. Ryan Church, rf; 7. Fernando Tatis, 1b; 8. Ramon Castro, c; 9. Johan Santana, p.

How about, Wes Helms at 3rd, Cantu at 1st, Bonifacio at short and maybe Gload at 2nd or vice-versa between Bonifacio and Gload -- Why everytime there is an injury or someone is struggling Fredi goes to the Un-Amazing Alfredo Amezaga. The guy does nothing with the bat. He is not the patient hitter he is made out to be. He is not as versatile on defense as he is made out to be. He is nothing but a bottom of the order hitter. In fact, he does not belong in the starting line up he is purely a career bench-warmer.

By the way, which one of you guys is covering the game today? Mike, George or Clark? Ill try to come in here and chat with you guys throughout the game.


I don't think it's possible to win with the lineup we're trotting out there vs Santana. I hope I'm wrong...

JJ has to be flawless.
