Projecting the Opening Day roster, 3/19

I’m not ready to place David Wright and Daniel Murphy on the disabled list to start the season, though there’s a good chance that will happen. We should have a much better idea on both of them after this weekend.

I am, however, ready to give Omar Quintanilla a roster spot over the struggling Brandon Hicks. The result:

C : John Buck
1B: Ike Davis
2B: Daniel Murphy
SS: Ruben Tejada
3B: David Wright
OF: Lucas Duda
OF: Collin Cowgill
OF: Marlon Byrd
Bench: Mike Baxter
Bench: Jordany Valdespin
Bench: Justin Turner
Bench: Omar Quintanilla
Bench: Anthony Recker

SP: Jon Niese
SP: Shaun Marcum
SP: Matt Harvey
SP: Dillon Gee
SP: Jeremy Hefner
RHP: Bobby Parnell (CL)
RHP: Brandon Lyon
RHP: Scott Atchison
RHP: LaTroy Hawkins
RHP: Greg Burke
LHP: Josh Edgin
LHP: Pedro Feliciano

DL: Frank Francisco, Johan Santana

In the running: C Landon Powell, INF Brandon Hicks, INF Zach Lutz, INF Brian Bixler, OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis, OF Andrew Brown, OF Matt den Dekker, RHP Jenrry Mejia, RHP Jeurys Familia, LHP Aaron Laffey, LHP Robert Carson.

Anthony, heard that the Mets had signed Corey Patterson and Mike Wilson to minor league contracts without inivtes to big league camp. Are they in camp with the AAA team? Haven’t heard their names mentioned at all. den Dekker needs to cut his K’s, and Captain Kirk needs to stay healthy. And I’m not so happy with Andrew Brown, nor Jamie Hoffman. Seems like we have Las Vegas’s outfield filled, with the losers making the big league roster. ANY trade help? HELP !
