The Mets are gambling Cliff Floyd’s Achilles tendon won’t snap for at least two more weeks. They named their NLCS roster this morning and he’s on it. But, if the field is wet, bet on Endy Chavez starting and Floyd being used as a pinch hitter.
The Mets went from 12 to 11 pitchers, dropping left reliever Royce Ring and
adding infielder Anderson Hernandez.
Here’s the breakdown:
PITCHERS (11): Chad Bradford, Pedro Feliciano, Tom Glavine, Aaron
Heilman, Roberto Hernandez, John Maine, Guillermo Mota, Darren Oliver,
Oliver Perez, Steve Trachsel, Billy Wagner.
CATCHERS (2): Paul Lo Duca, Ramon Castro.
INFIELDERS (7): Carlos Delgado, Julio Franco, Anderson Hernandez, Jose
Reyes, Jose Valentin, Chris Woodward, David Wright.
OUTFIELDERS (5): Carlos Beltran, Endy Chavez, Cliff Floyd, Shawn Green,
