What’s on Tap: Mets on SNY at 1 pm, Dice-K faces Cardinals

Jon Niese is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday, one week after getting a cortisone shot in his left elbow. He is expected to begin the year on the disabled list, but make his first start April 6 against the Reds.

Later in the day, Daisuke Matsuzaka continues competition for the final sport in the rotation by starting against the Cardinals at 1:10 p.m. in St. Lucie.

The game will air live on SNY.

Shelby Miller will start for the Cardinals, who can expect to see a healthy and fully-staffed Mets lineup, including Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda.

The Mets begin their 2014 season exactly one week from today.

am i the only one who hopes Dice K gets bombed?  


i get putting Flores at AAA.  just play him at ss and see if he can cut it.  this season is not going to be anything more than an audition for guys like d"arnaud, legares , mejia and noah.


i would be shocked if the mets come close to .500 this year.

Davis fighting for his baseball life and begs out of lineup cause I'm tired. SMH. Tell him to hit the bricks too!

Shelby Miller must be shaking in his cleats by merely thinking of facing Lucas Duda.
