Jerry manuel is heavily leaning towards starting John Niese in the 5th spot in the rotation. That would be three lefties in the rotation with Johan and Ollie. I wonder if that is thought of with the Philladelphia Phillies in mind. Does anyone remember the last time the mets went with three lefthanded starters out of spring training? Matlack,Koosman Lieter/Hampton have we ever had three lefties in the rotation to start the year?
