Yorvit Torrealba is just one of many changes the Mets will have in their 2008 Opening Day roster. Below is last year’s Opening Day roster, from which I can see up to nine new faces. And, possibly more if guys like Aaron Heilman or Lastings Milledge are dealt.
Ambiorix Burgos: Won’t be ready because of injury.
Tom Glavine: May not be re-signed.
Aaron Sele: Could retire.
Joe Smith: Might not make roster.
Paul Lo Duca: Replaced by Torrealba.
Julio Franco: Out of organization.
David Newhan: Not expected to be re-signed.
Jose Valentin: Not expected to be re-signed.
Shawn Green: Not expected to be re-signed.
