Chris Carter's pinch-hit double put the tying runs in scoring position duing the Mets' ninth inning rally against the Marlins Tuesday night. 

While he hasn't exactly lit up the boxscore, he has some power it would be nice if Carter could have been the spot starter at first base for Ike Davis instead of Fernando Tatis, who got a gift double on a misplayed pop up and is batting .175. He could  be on the way out. 

The problem is, Carter can't play first base or any other place. He averaged about 15 errors a season as a first baseman in the minor leagues and he's not much better as a corner outfielder. He was a designated hitter in college. 

Still, his hit earned a start in left for tonight's series finale in San Juan.
