25 Mets came north to start the season. Before the team played their first Spring Training game, I predicted the 25 players that would make the team out of camp.
Some were obvious, like Wright, Murphy, Davis, Harvey, etc.
So where did I go wrong?
I missed on two pitchers – 2 of which were because they were on the DL
Johan Santana (DL)
Shaun Marcum (DL)
Pedro Feliciano (minors)
The three pitchers I missed were replaced on the roster by:
The only position player I missed was Brandon Hicks, whom I had picked as the backup Shortstop over Omar Quintanilla. Jordany Valdespin made the team instead.
So I missed four guys. Two due to the disabled list. The two non-injured players I called wrong were Pedro Feliciano (who lost the 2nd lefty spot in the bullpen to Rice) and the backup shortshop.
What roster spots surprised you?
