Lineup Card: Rockies vs Mets 4-28-12

Colorado Rockies (10-9)
  1. Marco Scutaro (2B)
  2. Jonathan Herrera (3B)
  3. Carlos Gonzalez (LF)
  4. Troy Tulowitzki (SS)
  5. Todd Helton (1B)
  6. Michael Cuddyer (RF)
  7. Wilin Rosario (C)
  8. Dexter Fowler (CF)
  9. Guillermo Moscoso (P)
When an offense erupts for 18 runs on 19 hits the night before, might as well stick with that same template. That's exactly what Jim Tracy has done here, with Wilin Rosario sliding in at catcher for Ramon Hernandez being the only change.

I think it's also safe to say that Chris Nelson has become the odd man out in the infield, and is now a possible DFA candidate the next time Colorado looks to tweak their roster.

New York Mets (11-9)
  1. Kirk Nieuwenhuis (CF)
  2. Ruben Tejada (SS)
  3. Daniel Murphy (2B)
  4. David Wright (3B)
  5. Lucas Duda (RF)
  6. Scott Hairston (LF)
  7. Ike Davis (1B)
  8. Josh Thole (C)
  9. Dillon Gee (P)
If Guillermo Moscoso can hold Scott Hairston in check, then... 

Alright, let's not kid ourselves, he's not holding Hairston in check... so he might want to do a better job than Drew Pomeranz, Esmil Rogers and Josh Roenicke did of holding the other Mets in check. Otherwise, another 11-run inning will be required.
