Projecting the Opening Day roster: 3/3

Not much new this week, with only a small sample of Grapefruit League innings to analyze and little clarity in the second base competition. Pedro Beato has impressed Mets brass and could sneak onto the roster, as could left Pat Misch. But for now, I’ll stick with my guns (and I’ll include a picture of Jason Isringhausen, since the photos were not working last week):
