MMO Game Thread: Mets vs Twins, 1:05 PM

USATSI dillon gee

The New York Mets are in Fort Myers today to take on the Minnesota Twins at 1:05 PM. Dillon Gee will oppose Ricky Nolasco.

Unfortunately, the game will not be broadcast on TV or radio. But MMO is on site and I asked Dave to jump into our game thread and share any insights, quotes, images, etc.

Here are today’s lineups:


  1. Juan Lagares, cf
  2. Ruben Tejada, ss
  3. Lucas Duda, 1b
  4. Ike Davis, dh
  5. Andrew Brown, lf
  6. Zach Lutz, 3b
  7. Kirk Nieuwenhuis, rf
  8. Taylor Teagarden, c
  9. Omar Quintanilla, 2b


  1. Brian Dozier, 2b
  2. Jason Bartlett, ss
  3. Joe Mauer, dh
  4. Jason Kubel, rf
  5. Wilkin Ramirez, lf
  6. Chris Parmelee, 1b
  7. Josmil Pinto, c
  8. Eduardo Escobar, 3b
  9. Alex Presley, cf

Lucas Duda is starting at first base for the first time since injuring his left hamstring March 3. Ike Davis is in the game as well and will DH.

Looks like Juan Lagares is also tough as nails among his many other attributes. He’s in the game after taking a pitch to the shoulder yesterday and having a sizable bruise to show for a memento.

Dillon Gee is currently set to be the Opening Day starter and oppose Stephen Strasburg when the Mets take on the Nationals on March 31 at Citi Field.

Bobby Parnell is starting a minor league game today and will pitch 2 innings. He is expected to throw back to back days next week.

Enjoy the game and Lets Go Mets!
