On the eve of Opening Day here's a look at how the two new Mets in the starting lineup, Rod Barajas and Jason Bay (the "B-Boys"), fare against some 2010 opponents.   Because I'm keeping it optimistic as the season starts I've only included pitchers against whom they do well (by "well" I mean have a higher than their overall career OPS, you may click on their name to see how they've done against anyone you wish), and because I didn't want this list to be a mile long I'm only including pitchers against whom they have at least 10 career at bats.ARod touches our Rod inappropriatelyRod Barajas
