2009, The Year of Mets Devastation

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Just for fun let's take a look at the New York Mets Opening Day Roster to see just how devastated the New York Mets Roster is. We shall do this by listing their 25 man roster according to team importance.

DISABLED
1. Johan Santana - DISABLED 8/26
2. Carlos Beltran - DISABLED 6/22
3. Jose Reyes - DISABLED 5/21
4. David Wright - DISABLED 8/16
6. Carlos Delgado - DISABLED
8. John Maine - DISABLED 6/7
9. Oliver Perez - DISABLED 6/25
10. JJ Putz - DISABLED 6/5
16. Alex Cora - DISABLED 8/19

PREVIOUSLY INJURED
15. Brian Schneider, DISABLED from April 18-May30

TRADED
11. Ryan Church
18. Ramon Castro

RELEASED
17. Livan Hernandez
24. Darren O'Day
25. Marlon Anderson

HEALTHY
5. Fransisco Rodriguez
7. Mike Pelfrey
12. Luis Castillo
13. Sean Green
14. Daniel Murphy
16. Pedro Feliciano
17. Fernando Tatis
19. Bobby Parnell
20. Brian Stokes.
21. Jeremy Reed

So to sum up only 10 of the 25 man opening day roster have remained healthy throughout the season. Of these 10 players only two could be categorized as amongst the 10 most important players on the roster. Only 2 of these players were considered everyday starters. The remainder is either bullpen or backups. In the end their 4 best hitters have been lost and 4 of their 5 starters in their opening day rotation is done.

2009 has been a bad year for the Mets.
