Mets iffiness roundup.

Mets Lineup for spring training game: Luis Castillo, Livan Hernandez, Jose Reyes, Carlos Delgado, David Wright, Carlos Beltran, Ryan Church, Marlon Anderson, Rene Rivera

One question. Who is Rene Rivera?

Johan Santana is already having problems. We hope he won't prove our simplistic (but often correct) theory that there is a direct proportional relationship, and not a good one, between how well a player's facial hair is groomed off the field and how well he plays on the field.

Bobby Kielty: new bat in town.

Livan Hernandez: Did well in direct

pitching comparison with Mr. G, below.

Freddy Garcia: spielkus-inducing.

But look at that swatch! Big as a vacuum cleaner filter.

Adam Bostick: a bit walky.

But we'll see. In this shot, the Rivercats attempt to deal with Bostick's "wild slider," according to the Breaking Balls blog (that's also the photo source).

Brandon Knight: ACK!!!

No picture for YOU today! NEXT?

Ron Villone: age 39, new minor league contract. Hope springs eternal!

Except that he's played with 11 teams during his career! And except for the steroids. Why did the front office even...oh never mind.

If Johan gets hurt, Pelfrey and Maine will have to carry this team.

You were relatively kind to Bobby Kielty. I would have gone with Carrot Top.

Johan Santana better not get hurt. I want the Braves to beat the Mets fair and square this year.

I don't have the impressively radioactive color, but I probably have enough hair to put up like a troll doll. :D
