Here is the line-up:
SS Anderson Hernandez
2B Ruben Gotay
LF Brady Clark
CF Angel Pagan
C Ramon Castro
RF Fernando Martinez
1B Michel Abreu
DH Robinson Cancel
3B Anderson Machado
LH Oliver Perez
Now this is what you call a patched together line-up.
With all the preexisting injuries and the ones the Mets suffered over the past few days, Willie Randolph is lucky the team invites a whole slew of players to spring training.
I'm excited to see Perez today. I wonder if he'll experiment with any arm angles and anger Rick Peterson.
I'll add the pitching list once it's made public.
Again, I won't be able to track the game, so the recap will be a bit sparse.
Quick note: Adam Rubin, in his blog for the Daily News, has an interesting tidbit about Ruben Gotay.
Scouts suggest the Mets may be concerned about Ruben Gotay's range and expect the team to shop for a bona fide backup shortstop this spring.Should be interesting to see what Gotay does this preseason to either prove his spot on the team or raise his stock for a trade elsewhere.
Also, check out this great Fernando Martinez article, also by Rubin.
