The Mets have been teetering back and forth whether top prospect David Peterson would make his Major League debut tonight against the Boston Red Sox. The Mets are a bit short handed in the rotation with the recent loss of Marcus Stroman’s calf injury. The three options the Mets have for tonight’s game are Peterson, right-hander Erasmo Ramirez, and the option of having a bullpen game. There is no better upside than letting the 24-year old hulking left hander make his Major League debut tonight. Continue reading →
With Opening Day for the Mets less than a mere 48 hours away my excitement, I’m sure like most of you, is through the roof! While this season is going to look very different in multiple ways from previous seasons, at the end of the day it’s still the game we love and we are happy to have back.

The New York Mets played a pair of exhibition games against the New York Yankees over the weekend as both teams ramp up for Opening Day this week. While I would’ve loved to see the Mets at least play one more exhibition game prior to Friday, we’ll settle for two and send our undivided attention to Friday’s afternoon opener against the Atlanta Braves.

For the most part the Mets starting lineup, starting rotation, and most of the bullpen is set, barring any sort of injury during Spring Training 2.0. However there are still a couple of bench spots that could be up for grabs, as well as a couple of potential back end spots in the bullpen avaliable for Opening Day. I’m also under the assumption that the Mets will put a few of their top prospects on their taxi squad in order to avoid stunting any development due to no Minor League baseball occuring this season, as well as having them avaliable in case a need arises due to injury during this abbreviated season.
