This is a silly hypothetical, but say you were managing the Mets in a single-elimination relegation game — the very existence of the franchise depends on winning this one baseball game and for some reason you’re calling the shots, high-pressure stuff. Andres Torres is healthy and Kirk Nieuwenhuis was sent back down to Triple-A, so you’re basically working with the Mets’ Opening Day roster. Oh, and Lucas Duda already told you that it’s really important to him to play right field, so if you want his bat in the lineup he has got to be there.
Your opponent has a good but not spectacular rookie right-hander set to start. No one on your team has faced him before.
Who’s playing left?
