Game Preview: Mets @ Marlins

The Mets (0-1) will try to get their first win of the season against the Florida Marlins (1-0) tonight at 7:10.

Jonathan Niese takes the mound against Ricky Nolasco. Niese has had his struggles this spring, but he is still a strikeout pitcher and I feel he might adapt to the #2 role better than Mike Pelfrey adapted to the #1 role. Plus, I've always liked Jonathan there's a little bit of bias.

According to the team's Twitter account, the Mets are 10-7 all-time following an Opening Day loss. The Mets also haven't won a game in Miami since September 27, 2009.

The Mets lineup is as follows:

1. Jose Reyes- SS

2. Angel Pagan- CF

3. David Wright- 3B

4. Carlos Beltran- RF

5. Ike Davis- 1B

6. Lucas Duda- LF

7. Brad Emaus- 2B

8. Josh Thole- C

9. Jonathan Niese- LHP

David Wright Strikeout Counter: $0.20
