First I’d like to thank each and everyone for their kind words and condolences, your kind words at this time are extremely comforting. Thank you guys so much

Poor Daniel Murphy what at time to get hurt? Just when his bat was coming around and he settling in to play first base to start the season he goes down with a knee sprain that will set him back 2 to 6 weeks. So now both Murphy and Jose Reyes start the season on the DL. How about that “unnamed Met” telling the NY Post about the club “babying” Reyes. From following this team for as long as I have I know that its’ a bad sign when “unnamed Met” shows up in the clubhouse.

Back to Murphy and first base, I cannot believe the Mets will start the season with Mike Jacobs and Fernando Tatis at the position. What message does that send to Ike Davis? “Kid we feel you’re a big league player right now but you know we have to delay that service time clock as much as possible”.  That’s the only reason they have not grabbed Davis out of minor league camp yet they are still deciding if it’s worth starting the arbitration eligibility clock.

Alex Cora at short and Mike Jacobs at first for opening day UGHHHHHHHH!

  1. ‘Alex Cora at short and Mike Jacobs at first for opening day UGHHHHHHHH!’

    Couldn’t agree more…..

  2. Shouldn’t Carter be given a shot?

  3. With Jacobs and Tatis, you know what you’re getting – an occasional big hit, but a lot of strikeouts and DP’s.
    At least if the Mets give Chris Carter a chance at first base, there is hope that all that hard work will pay off and his strong spring will carry over into the season. If not, he loses the job when Murphy gets back or when Davis proves he’s ready by dominating at Buffalo, but who knows, Carter may be up to the job.

  4. This is only a small blip on the screen for us. There’s lots to look forward to in the coming weeks.

    I eagerly await the start of the championship season.

  5. Why do I have the urge to put wood paneling and lava lamps in my basement. Am I going to spend my summer there?

  6. I’m ok with Jacobs at first in Murphy’s absence. I understand the idea of giving Carter a shot. I like the young players, too. But, there are too many question marks on the team to go with Carter. With Jacobs, you get a power threat, a LH stick between all the righties, and someone who is respected throughout the league for his power.

    Get your mutts predictions in ahead of opening day.
