Issue #1: The Playoff Roster

8 Starting players: Jose Reyes, Paul Lo Duca, Carlos Beltran, Carlos Delgado, David Wright, Cliff Floyd and Jose Valentin

4 Starting pitchers: Pedro Martinez, Tom Glavine, Orlando Hernandez and Steve Trachsel

8 Relief pitchers: Aaron Heilman, Guillermo Mota, Roberto Hernandez, Pedro Feliciano, Billy Wagner, John Maine, Darren Oliver and Chad Bradford

5 Bench players: Endy Chavez, Julio Franco, Mike DiFelice, Chris Woodward and Lastings Milledge

I left off Dave Williams because I like Darren Oliver better as a left long man.
I chose DiFelice as the backup catcher over Kelly Stinnett. Definite weak spot of the team. Wish Castro were healthy.
I selected Lastings Milledge over Michael Tucker because I think he brings more things to the table and will benefit greatly from this experience,

All in all these choices really weren't that tough.

Actually, MetsBlog is reporting that Castro is on a rehab assignment right now, hoping to be ready for the playoffs.

Why put Maine on the roster if you have Oliver as your long man? I like Maine, but I might use that spot for an extra bat off the bench. That bench is really weak. Like the Ukraine. If nothing else, we might need Anderson Hernandez for late inning defense.
