    In the event Niese isn't ready for opening day

    Who becomes our technical 5th starter?

    With the rotation most likely looking like

    Colon
    Gee
    Wheeler
    Dice-K

    The 5th starter will most likely be __________

    Probably Lannan if Mejia pitches like this.

    pitching on Sunday against the Reds.

    I looked to see if the Mets would even need a 5th starter at the beginning of the season. Often teams have enough off days that a 5th starter isn't needed until mid or the end of the month. No such luck for the Mets.

    I'll say John Lannan gets the spot if it looks like Niese will miss significant time - assuming that Lannan has an opt out at some point in his minor league contract.

    Probably Torres if they think Niese will be back sooner than later - depending on Torres' status with options, etc.

    It's looking like a toss up between Mejia and Lannan (although I bet Lannan will get the edge)

    Curious though if people think there are other realistic options out there.

    The only somewhat realistic options would be Torres and deGrom(outside of Lannan and Mejia). deGrom is already on the 40 man, and Torres is already on the roster.

    I'm pretty sure it'll be Mejia. Lannan seems like he'll be the 2nd lefty out of the pen.

    Assuming we'll have the likes of Murphy, Tejada, and Duda on the field, let's hope we don't give a groundball pitcher like Lannan a rotation spot.

    if Lannan is out of options he will get the spot, even if hes on a minor league deal

    but have faith in the reinforcements, they are on the way

    I thought Mejia was unhittable. I guess not.

    I think Bartolo (I like to stuff my) Colon is now their opening day starter barrinng a catastrophic collapse in ST of any sort.

    I imagine the 5th starter is now John Lannan.

    See what I did there?
