What’s on Tap: Last game before Opening Day

The Mets play their final exhibition game Saturday when Daisuke Matsuzaka starts against the Blue Jays in Montreal on Saturday at 1:05 pm ET.

The Mets will hold a team workout at Citi Field on Sunday and begin their 2014 regular season Monday at home against the Nationals.

The plan for the starting rotation is practical and fair. If it comes down to a choice between Matsuzaka and Mejia may the best man win. The same goes for the outfield.

I'm a sucker. Going to a saturday in May vs the phillies and a game at yankee stadium and one at citi since its jeter's last year. I hate that I'm giving money to the Wilpons and supporting their ways.

I've been a fan for over 40 yrs. Each opening day I have been truly optimistic. Because our GM and ownership, AGAIN, has not addressed the three glaring issues that have plagued this team the past several years - SS, 1st base and THE BULLPEN, I believe the Mets will not exceed the 74 wins of last year. 90 win target A JOKE. But hey Sandy thanks for adding 2 outfielders.

i am hoping that they have the brains and good sense to bring in a new shortstop between now and Monday, Tejads and Q suck! i cant believe that the are going to hand cuff this team with Duda, Davis,Tejada & Q again this year and expect different results, the stubborness & stupidity of this ownership & management is mind boggling!

For the first time in close to 40 years I have not seen the Mets play once in spring training (on TV). The really sad part about that is that it wasn't even a conscious effort not to watch them....they have become so bad that I don't even care anymore.

Believe it or not, I think they are aware of the problem. Playing Lets Make a Deal on the telephone may be harder than you think.

@yankeehater i agree, i used to piss my wife off and cut shopping or an outing short and  say we have to get home in time to watch the game. Those days are gone, if the cheap owners dont care enough to up grade this team and make them watchable why should i?

@hankypanky im not too sure they are aware of problem. If this was true, why not do something about 1b or ss?? I feel sandy says if tejeda or ike actually do something he looks like a genius. And if they dont, people blame owners for no money. Sandy is a do nothing gm just collecting paycheck, he wont make any moves that could backfire. He will never take chances that would ruin his rep.

@dreamer3kx @rubiconx0 i have no confidence in Ike what so ever, he is a big baby who spend more time arguing with the umpire and pouting than hitting the ball!  This is a sorry team with even sorrier owners!
