Reyes to bat leadoff, Pagan third, along with more pregame notes

This time, Jerry Manuel made good on his word to shake things up, if only to return Jose Reyes to the leadoff spot and experiment with Angel Pagan at No. 3. Manuel actually scoffed at the idea when it was suggested on Thursday, but it was he who first brought it up back on April 21, as you can read in this column.

I'm thinking David Wright will back hitting third before very long.

Jose Reyes - SS
Luis Castillo - 2B
Angel Pagan - CF
Jason Bay - LF
David Wright - 3B
Ike Davis - 1B
Jeff Francoeur - RF
Rod Barajas - C
John Maine - RHP

In other news, Henry Blanco has returned from the Bereavement Leave, meaning Josh Thole has been optioned back to Triple-A Buffalo. Also, Carlos Beltran is here visiting with the Mets.

We'll be hearing about Oliver Perez's fate very shortly.
