Terry Collins plans the following lineup, and pledges not to have major day-to-day adjustments:

Jose Reyes
Angel Pagan
David Wright
Carlos Beltran
Jason Bay
Ike Davis


The Nos. 7 and 8 spots will go to the second baseman and catcher, depending on whom is playing those days.

Collins confirmed that configuration, which he has floated in the past, during a visit to Port St. Lucie by the Post.

The manager also told the newspaper he plans to have bowling nights during spring training to help the team bond. Players can bowl with their wrong hand or not at all. He just wants them to spend time together having fun.
