The Mets completed the final fine tuning of the roster yesterday to cut down to 25 men for today’s opening game of the 2008 regular season.

No offense to Johan Santana but Randolph should have been mentioned there if Girardi is mentioned in reference to [...]
Moises Alou visited camp yesterday and said he hopes to be playing by the end of April. In related news I saw a pig flying over Manhattan yesterday. But seriously I’d have to agree with Omar Minaya who said that he expects Alou to return in May.
Ken Rosenthal at FoxSports.com lists his managers on the hotseat in 2008. Topping the list is Willie Randolph. This is no surprise given the collapse of 2007.
