Very odd feeling in the clubhouse this morning. Some guys will be bussing to Tampa after the game, others won’t. Some will stay in minor league camp. Others fly home and wait for the phone to ring.
Mets say they’ll make their final roster decisions this morning. The three issues are where to start Mike Pelfrey; how many pitchers, 11 or 12; and what happens with Lastings Milledge.
If they keep 11, Milledge could stay, but what about all those consistent at-bats he was supposed to get? Then again, they could go with 11 and still option Milledge to the minors.
Ambiorix Burgos, Chan Ho Park and Jon Adkins are competing for either one or two pitching spots.
If it is between Park and Adkins, it is a no-brainer. You have to go with Park. The options issue is moot in that scenario.
