Reyes - Beltran - Wright - Delgado - Floyd

Doesn't that seem perfect? C'mon, Willie. Image


That's how I'd have 1-5

Umm, what are you talking about?

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I didn't realize the Mets signed Hernandez AND Molina either...

Reyes - Should stay in the leadoff spot; still the Mets' best base stealer, and may be one of the best in baseball next year if he improves his OPS, which I think he will.

Lo Duca - A prototypical number 2 hitter if you ask me.

Beltran - A perfect number 3 hitter too if he can pull his average up over .300 like he's supposed to. Hopefully he'll "get with the program" this year.

Delgado - The cleanup hitter the Mets needed

Wright - Still perfect at number 5, but could hit 3rd if Beltran doesn't produce.

Floyd - I don't think he'll repeat the year he had last, but will be quite the productive 6 slot hitter

Nady - It's possible that Diaz won't even make the opening day roster with Chavez and Redman added to the lineup... I guess it'll depend on spring training, but Nady will probably be the everyday right fielder, but will undoubtably share the duties with one of the other guys.

Matsui - Only viable option right now at 2nd base, but the Mets are trying hard to deal him; I hope they do.

As for the rotation, it looks like Victor Zambrano's going to be the number 5 guys with Seo gone now. It's still one of the deepest rotations in the league, it just doesn't have a lot of late-inning staying power; hence the understandable reason they traded Seo to boost their bullpen. I don't Baez is going to happen now, as he's not work Heilman... but Heilman for Zito would be worth it if you ask me.

Ramon Hernandez is with the O's and Bengie Molina is with Anaheim. The guys on drugs.

I hope its Reyes, Beltran, Wright, Delgado, Floyd, Loduca. And i doubt Beltran brings his avg. up to .300.

Personally, I'd like to see Beltran hit second in the lineup too... he seems better equipped there, but I'm still holding out hope that he can hit .300 or close to it... that, along with his ability to hit homers (there's no reason he can't knock out at least 20 dingers, even at Shea... maybe even 30 if he really turns himself around) and steal bases, and you've got the multi-tool player the Mets expected last year.

O im sure hell hit 20. With his dreadful stats last year, he would have hit 17 dingers over 162 games. IMO thats close enough to 20 that i can say hes gonna have at least 20+ if not 25+ unless he matches the likes of 2005, which we all hope he forgets. :-o

But he was signed as a multi-tool player... he went top three in my fantasy draft last year. He should be hitting 30 home runs, stealing bases and hitting at least close to .300.

Remember, he's still pretty young.

I like LoDuca at #2 myself, until he shows me he's not very good there (which his numbers imply he is) and Beltran shows me he's capable of hitting like he did before he came to Shea. That said, here's my lineup, given our current personnel...

Reyes
LoDuca
Beltran
Delgado
Wright
Floyd
Nady
Matsui :~( :,-(
P

I'd take just about anybody at 2B over Matsui. Bring up Keppinger or somebody and let them play the way Reyes and Wright did. I can't see somebody producing worse than Matsui with the bat and glove, and at least one of our youngin's will get some low pressure major league experience with great bats around them.
