If The Season Started Today

It's February but let's pretend the season is about to start and Terry Collins has to fill out his lineup card.  The roster might look something like this:

C Josh Thole
C Mike Nickeas

1B Ike Davis
2B Daniel Murphy
3B David Wright
SS Ruben Tejada
OF Jason Bay
OF Andres Torres
OF Lucas Duda

SP R.A. Dickey
SP Mike Pelfrey
SP Dillon Gee
SP Jon Niese
SP Chris Schwinden/A healthy Johan Santana

INF Justin Turner
INF Ronny Cedeno
OF Scott Hairston

RP Bobby Parnell
RP Tim Byrdak
RP Frank Francisco
RP Jon Rauch
RP Pedro Beato
RP Manny Acosta
RP Ramon Ramirez

The Mets didn't make any big offseason moves so their roster is pretty similar to the one that closed out 2011.  This season will be used for players to grow at the major league level as well as the minor league levels.  This team isn't built to be a powerhouse but anything can happen and there are some promising names in the system.

Let's Go Mets!
