Roster Move: Matt Wise Placed on 15-Day DL

As the Mets bullpen continues to spit the bit during the home opener, now is a good time to mention their latest roster move. Matt Wise is going on the shelf, victim of a bruised forearm, and Carlos Muniz will be taking his place in the bullpen. I've railed a lot about seven-man bullpens and why they are unnecessary, but I'm starting to reconsider that. By the end of the week I hope to expand upon this topic a little more.

Wise has gotten off to a bad start, but I'm still confident he can come back to have a good season. Muniz is a space filler. Let's take a look at the active roster now:

STARTING PITCHERS
Johan Santana
Oliver Perez
John Maine
Mike Pelfrey
Nelson Figueroa
Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez-DL
Pedro Martinez-DL

RELIEF PITCHERS
Billy Wagner (closer)
Aaron Heilman
Pedro Feliciano
Scott Schoenweis
Jorge Sosa
Joe Smith
Carlos Muniz
Matt Wise-DL

CATCHERS
Brian Schneider
Raul Casanova
Ramon Castro-DL

INFIELDERS
Carlos Delgado
Luis Castillo
David Wright
Jose Reyes
Damion Easley

OUTFIELDERS
Carlos Beltran
Ryan Church
Marlon Anderson
Endy Chavez
Angel Pagan
Brady Clark
Moises Alou-DL

They could have had Register mowing down the NL east this past week instead we have Wise on the DL and a lefty who can't get out lefties. Where is Feliciano in the big spots, i.e. TODAY!

Nice job, Roughneck. I hope to be a regular contributor.

Willie continues to bury Feliciano in the back of the bullpen, to the detriment of this team. When I do the Should They or Shouldn't They look at the roster, take a wild guess how I'll rate Schoenweis?

Boy, do you love that Steven Register.
