Mets March Madness 3-27

We’ll have one more March Madness Post in March and then the next day the season will start. Sunday the roster will be completely ready for Opening Day, so that will be the end of this feature. I’ll have to dream up a new feature.

A big round of cuts, plus the new Article XX(B) players being told where they’ll land, have made the 25 man roster much clearer.

Cut:  INF Wilmer Flores, LHP Aaron Laffey*, INF Brian Bixler*, INF Brandon HicksRHP Carlos Torres*, OF Jamie Hoffmann*,  Pedro Feliciano*, OF Andrew Brown*,C Travis d’Arnaud.  and 1B Josh Satin*.

I’ve got Murphy on the DL now (and maybe only for a couple of days) instead of Wright, who I think will play opening day. Marcum’s spot simply won’t get filled on opening day. They’ll fill it when they need a fifth starter. I’ve got them carrying an extra position player, Neiuwenhuis, instead of an additional pitcher. So quite a bit of movement with a fist full of cuts. I don’t think anyone on the bubble will make the team, but Familia has the best shot if they decide to carry another pitcher.
