Bison-esque lineup for Mets today

The Mets play the Washington Nationals today at 1:10 on SNY and there's quite a Buffalo tinge in their lineup as Chris Schwinden, the Bisons' most valuable pitcher,  gets his second major-league start and Valentino Pascucci will get the call at first base.

Pascucci is scheduled to bat seventh in what will be his first MLB start since Oct. 3, 2004 with the Montreal Expos. He is 1 for 2 so far with the Mets in pinch-hitting roles after being called up from the Bisons, his first trip to the bigs since '04.

Pascucci earned Buffalo's MVP honors this season by batting .264 with team-highs of 21 homers and 91 RBIs.

Also from the Mets: Bisons infielder Josh Satin was named the organization's minor-league player of the year. Huge jump for him from organizational guy to prospect.
