BASEBALL: Overmatched

Your New York Mets starting lineup today against Kerry Wood:

Kaz Matsui, SS
Todd Zeile, 3B
Mike Piazza, 1B
Shane Spencer, LF
Karim Garcia, RF
Mike Cameron, CF
Vance Wilson, C
Joe McEwing, 2B
Tyler Yates, P

You just aren't going to win much with that; is it any surprise they got shut out? And while we're at it, why have Zeile hit second and Cameron sixth? At least Cameron can run if he manages to get on base; Zeile was slow 15 years ago. Actually, despite a few lapses in the field, Cameron has basically been exactly what he was cracked up to be, batting .236/.418/.348 after hitting .253/.431/.344 last season and .239/.442/.340 in 2002.

Wow...and all this time I've thought the Mets would be better this year-not with that lineup they won't. Todd (The Prodigal Sub) Zeile hitting second? Might as well just forfeit.
