Less that three weeks ‘til Opening Day.
Decision time’s a-coming for Omar and Co., and with two kids currently outplaying their veteran counterparts, I wonder if we’ll take a gamble when it’s time to head north.
Or take the easy way out and decide based on reputations.
If camp were to break today, Lastings Milledge deserves to be in rightfield every day and Mike Pelfrey deserves to be on the hill every fifth day.
It is believed Shawn Green (who to his credit, isn’t going without a fight) and Chan Ho Park will get the starting gigs at their expense. If they do, it is strictly for their performances years ago.
One legitimate knock on us is that we’re a little long in the tooth.
After all, I thought these were supposed to be open competitions.
Shawn Green: .156 AVG
Lastings Milledge: .355 AVG
Ben Johnson: .355 AVG
Chan Ho Park: 6.1 IP, 7.11 ERA
Mike Pelfrey: 5 IP, 0.00 ERA
Mets in ’07!
