I still would love to figure out what the Mets did with the money they were ready to give Balfour after he took less to go to the Rays. They didn't sign Rodney, who was pretty comparable. They didn't sign anyone with it. I figured it was possible it could go towards Drew but that possibility seems nil at this point. Right back in the pockets of the Wilpons, I guess...

 

Mets are playing 2 final exhibition games in Montreal vs the Jays tonight and tomorrow afternoon. Games will be on MLB Network. Supposedly a great crowd due.

Mejia got hit in the forearm with a comebacker and left the game tonight. Didn't look too distraught about it, but damn, he can't catch a freakin' break.

good point. Maybe they stashed it away for down the line if they trade to bring in a player with a large salary...but yea, probably right back into the Wilpons pockets

Yeah it hit his right forearm. Didn't look serious, I would imagine just a welt/bruise.

Do they have to send him back to NY for the x-ray?  Maybe it's my imagination but it seems like every time someone gets hurt in Florida they send him to NY for an x-ray, or when someone gets hurt in NY they send him down to Florida and it's always seemed odd to me.  Like there aren't good MRI machines in NY and Florida.

Injury happened in Montreal this time, but no, he had x-rays locally, supposedly. Sounds like he's okay:

 

Jenrry Mejia in the clubhouse this morning. No cast or anything.

Great, great, great news, whether he succeeds or not.  Time to start getting questions answered, which hasn't been happening at all under Passive's watch.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Well, opening day is upon us. Mets usually do very well on opening day but I'm not feeling extremely optimistic facing Strasburg and that potentially devastating Nats lineup.

 

Also don't like the "play opening day/off the next" schedule. Not sure why they always do that

 

Looking at our first 10 games...I would sign for 4-6

They have to...in case it rains (of course, it can always rain two days in a row, espeically in April).  But I always hated that too (and April baseball in general kind of has a "start/stop" feel to it...of course, good starts always have a way of making that less apparent).

They probably shouldn't have Opening Days in the Northeast period the first two weeks of the season, but hopefully it gets nicer out for the ones that are going today.

April is going to be really rough schedule-wise:

 

3 each vs WSH, CIN

3 each @ ATL, LAA

2 each @ ARI

3 each vs ATL

4 each vs STL

 

Other than Arizona, PECOTA projects all of those teams to be .500 or better, with St. Louis and Washington clear division favorites, and Los Angeles projected to win a tight AL West. 

 

----

 

Happy Opening Day everyone! The Mets are eerily keeping quiet with their lineup but I expect EY to be in there.

nmig, Mets' sched has a 9-game road swing (three @ ATL, three @ LAA, three @ Arizona).  Then three more at ATL.  Very easy to see the Mets going 4-8 in those.  I'd be thrilled with 6-6.

 

That's what kind of blows...Mets could easily be five games under .500 by the end of the month, which means Passive's 90 prediction will be coming up a lot in the media.

6-9 in our first 15 would be fine by me, especially with our pen

 

I don't mind interleague play vs the Yankees and other interesting series (like when we go up to play Boston...which isn't enough by the way)

 

But visiting the Angels in April? Huh? Just weird

Daniel Murphy not in the lineup today since his wife went into labor. Eric Young Jr. at 2nd.

 

also Adam Rubin tweeted that the Mets lineup wasn't yet released due to some late "complications"...which got the fan base a bit riled up since it sounded kind of ominous. Another PR flub. Jay Horowitz really needs to go.

Yeah, make that 3 vs Arizona, misread the schedule. 

 

Murphy being out of the lineup likely means EYJr. at 2B, Lagares in CF. I wonder if they'll make a paternity list move. The minimum absence is 1 game, so they could put Murphy on it and call-up a 40-man roster player. I mean, there is no reason not to, but of course Las Vegas being our AAA affiliate gets in the way of something like this. I wouldn't be surprised if they called up one of the 40-man players that is on the B-Mets' roster -- Tovar? At quick glance I think he's the only 2014 B-Met who is on the 40-man.
