Collins Says He’s Moving Duda To No. 5 Spot In Batting Order
The Dude abides…
“I’d put him up against anybody in the league as far as power.”
That’s what manager Terry Collins had to say after today’s 4-2 win over the Atlanta Braves.
Collins also said that he expects Duda to surpass Jason Bay in the batting order, and that he will be going from the six spot in the lineup to the No. 5 hole beginning with the next series against the Nationals.
The Mets are facing left-hander Mike Minor tomorrow and prefer to make the move on Monday when Mike Pelfrey goes up against right-hander Edwin Jackson for the Nats.

Looks like the new walls at Citi Field are working out just fine…
Lucas Duda smacks his first home run of the day in the fourth inning against Jair Jurrjens of the Atlanta Braves.
Duda muscles an absolute bomb in the 7th inning against Chad Durbin to put the Mets up 4-2.
ALL HAIL THE DUDE!
David Wright also homered in the game, his first of the season. Oh yeah, we won 4-2… Clayton will have a recap up shortly…
You gotta what? You gotta what? I can’t hear you!
