Let’s get ready to Rumble…..

The waiting is almost over, the last taxis leave Florida for minor fields while 25 head for the Big Apple and Opening Day 2007.

As we while away the last few hours of the off season the final 25 man roster the Mets have settled on is

Starting Pitchers

Tom Glavine, LHP
Orlando Hernandez, RHP
John Maine, RHP
Oliver Perez, LHP

Starting Lineup

Paul Lo Duca, C
Carlos Delgado, 1B
Jose Valentin, 2B
David Wright, 3B
Jose Reyes, SS
Moises Alou, LF
Carlos Beltran, CF
Shawn Green, RF


Billy Wagner, LHP
Aaron Heilman, RHP
Pedro Feliciano, LHP
Joe Smith, RHP
Scott Shoeneweis, LHP
Ambiorix Burgos, RHP
Aaron Sele, RHP


Endy Chavez, OF
Julio Franco, 1B
Ramon Castro, C
Damion Easley, IF
David Newhan, OF
Lastings Milledge, OF

Mike Pelfrey awaits his call-up as the fifth pitcher once the Mets need one, Lastings Milledge hoping he can make himself indispensable in the meantime giving Willie and the rest the task of who to send down.

Ambiorix Burgos was a surprise for me, although he has shown flashes of what he can do I would far rather be carrying Chan Ho with his RP/SP versatility while Burgos gets more practice at Triple A. Most of the bullpen were lit up for several big innings during Spring Training, I hope they knuckle down for the regular season.

Come on Tom! Let’s get one more win closer to 300!
