Back to Church

It's not Sunday, but the Mets will be looking for Church tonight.

That's right, Ryan Church will be appearing in the Mets lineup tonight and is actually slated to start in right field against the Astros.

This is a moment that the Mets, Mets Lifers, and Ryan Church has been anxiously awaiting since he went on the DL back on July 8th. This should give Fernando Tatis some well deserved rest, but I hope Jerry Manuel looks to keep Tatis' bat fresh.

I'm thinking that Church will only play 5 or 6 innings at a time as the Mets look to ease him back into everyday play. It will be good to see Church in blue and orange again.

Welcome back.
