can we nickname Tejada "Ofor" and just him by that name?  Hey Ofor can you sign this?  Hey Ofor, plan on getting a hit tofay?  Nice grab there Ofor!

Farnsworth can be cut now please. He has sucked even when not allowing runs.  Today was the norm.  Carreno is also not making it,  Lannan pretty much did what they would want of him. if he goes 6 and allows 3, he would be doing his job.  5K's was high.

I love listening to the Mets broadcasters. They know there stuff, keep talking about meaningful things and are funny. Its to the point that if there not on the job. I might as well mute it. They have made me think everyone else is terrible.  I feel like I have a coach in the booth with Keith. But there all great. Normally I would not even comment about such a thing, but Seriously watching the game without the Mets broadcasters... lets just compare it as a Porsche to a Chevy. If anyone else feels the same or knows of any other teams nearly as good let me know. These guys are truly awesome.

Campbell should get some consideration to be the opening day first baseman I'm more confident in him than Ike or duda

Damn, I was hoping to see Flores at SS televised. I guess since he played the whole game yest, that wasn't gonna happen back to back days. Probably give him a day to absorb it and figure out what he needs to correct. Im sure he's working w. Fonzie and Tuff to get a little better at the position, hopefully throughout spr. I hope I catch Flores nxt telecast. At least legares is out there. I get the feeling that TC wants him there as a starter opening day. It shouldn't be a suprise since everyone else wants him there too.

So I guess Meija is not getting a shot at the 5th spot after all?  He hasn't started any grapefruit league games?  I think he is much better than our other 2 options.

Why is EY the DH and why isn't Flores getting some reps at SS? I can't believe this team! SMH

They look like a TERRY team no fundies.

By the way how is Terry doing getting these guys ready for opening day. The entire infield isnt ready and starters will be ready to go 5 innings resulting in a worn out bullpen after game 2.

Bad job by Terry not playing Flores at SS, man I can't stand his decision making skills or lack there of (mets should have parted ways with him, hopefully that happens after this season)

You guys live to complain....Minus the DH - this is pretty damn close to what our opening day lineup will look like....just plug in TDA and whichever 1st baseman heals the best by March 31st to start...like it or not this is who we're going to war with

Ok, so we know Lagares can play center and we know Eric Young can help us at the plate. Wouldn't it make sense to have Young in left to keep evaluating him out there (and C. Young in center) and have Lagares DH, since all we really need to learn about him is whether he can hit well enough to start? This lineup might be useful in an interleague game, but it does nothing to help us figure out our team!

@Attorney Pooze Pozi  He was released by the Rockies anyone could have had him for nothing. All of Sandy acquisitions are players who were unwanted. It is like trying to trade Colon he was available for nothing but money.

Ha ha ROFL, prolly with gloves the size of the one at Mc.Covey cove in ATT park, lol.

No, I believe he started 2 games. He looks fine too, with his stuff. I think ppl want him in the pen to stretch him out. Also, media is raving about Montero's poise, command etc. They both look good tho. I'lk take both any which way on Mar 31 as long as they r both at Citi field. But knowing TC, we'll prolly see Dice K there instead. That'll be awful. If that happens, i'm coming to Citi just to throw a shoe at him, lol. Ha, nah JK.

@mike23  TERRY is a moron where does this move rank in comparison to intentionally walking a guy with 2 strikes.

@Ed Yano  Trying to advance to second with the tying run at the plate in the 9th. You and Terry would care if he made it. I and baseball people know it should never be tried regardless if it works!!!

@Ed Yano Not sure errors and passed balls usually attributed to failing to get in front of a ball or not knowing what finger you put down or  failure in communicating on the change of signs. Things I have seen before crashes in the outfield no one covering on a double steal crashes on the infield. You know that old chestnut?

@jamets  another person who doesn't think from a position stand point, murphy certainly does hit a ton for a second basemen, his numbers last year were awesome for a second basemen batting second in a crappy lineup all year
