Regis Courtemanche: The Mets have made it continually harder for me to focus on the positives lately. A big reason is because they have eight players on the disabled list. If you could get any one back right now, who would it be, and do you think it would be enough to make an immediate impact?

Ted Berg: While I think the Mets could really use Jose Reyes? bat and glove right now, if we?re playing with hypotheticals I?d love to see Carlos Delgado back for a couple of reasons. I think first base is one position at which they can most reasonably expect to add a bat if need be, so if Delgado could (magically) return early, they could get a sense of what they are going to get from him going moving forward. We?ve seen guys make full recoveries from hip injuries, so if Delgado could come back and hit like he did in the second half of 2008, all of a sudden the need for a power bat doesn?t look so glaring. If he looks like the injury is going to affect him all year, the Mets should get a better sense of their deadline approach.

Matthew Cerrone: I'd probably say the healthy, dominant J.J. Putz - or Billy Wagner - because order in the bullpen and shortening the game is so important.? However, right now, I think I agree with Ted, I'd bring back Delgado, because the bullpen is useless if the team can't score runs.? The lineup is in dire need of instant offense, and someone to take pressure off of everyone, including David Wright and Jose Reyes.? Delgado from the second-half of last season would make a significant impact on this roster.

The Yankees defeated the Mets, 15-0, this afternoon at Yankee Stadium.

For a complete recap, box score and stats, click here.

The Least You Should Know:

  • Johan Santana did not pitch well, allowing nine runs on nine hits over three innings. His velocity appeared to be down, and at times he had trouble controlling his slider.
  • A.J. Burnett pitched himself into and out of trouble early, most notably in the third inning, when the Mets loaded the bases but could not score. He settled down to throw seven innings of scoreless ball.
  • The Mets? bullpen followed Santana by allowing six runs over five innings.
Other Observations and Notes:
  • Oof.
  • Johan Santana?s ERA jumped from 2.39 to 3.29 with the effort.
  • Brian Stokes? ERA jumped from 2.49 to 3.80 with the effort.
  • Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez combined to go 1-for-8 in the game, but the Yankees scored 15 runs. Ugh.
  • Santana said after the game that he?s fine and he has no dead arm issue.
  • For what it?s worth, K-Rod and Brian Bruney had to be separated before the game when Bruney tried to make amends for earlier comments. For more, check out Christian Red?s report in the Daily News.

In today's Bergen Record, Bob Klapisch writes about how Citi Field's dimensions could be affecting the Mets' style of play this year.

There's one major problem, though: While Klapisch notes that the Mets have hit only 17 home runs in 23 games at Citi Field, he neglects to mention that the Mets have hit only 15 home runs in 23 games on the road.

Moreover, Mets pitchers have allowed 19 home runs at home and 16 on the road, meaning that the Mets have both hit and allowed more home runs at Citi Field than they have on the road in the same amount of games.

SNY's Ask the Booth inbox gets a wide variety of e-mails, from reasonable baseball questions for Ron Darling to unmentionable personal questions for Keith Hernandez.

Sorting through them is a chore, but one that pays off big time when you come across something like the following picture, sent in by Daniel Murphy's former classmate Kara.

Why does it say ?Insurance Person? under the photo?? Because that's what he said he wanted to be when he grew up.

According to David Lennon in his blog for Newsday, Johan Santana will not start on Opening Day on April 6. Lennon writes:

The delay caused by the tightness in his left elbow is going to push him back to the fifth turn of that first week, which is Saturday, April 11, in Florida.
The Mets have not yet confirmed the report.

Last night, SNY’s Ted Berg talked with Mets GM Omar Minaya for an interview on SNY.tv.

Here is a quick sample of their discussion, which I found most interesting – otherwise, to watch the entire four-minute interview, scroll down and click play…

Ted Berg: How do you balance the desire to put together a competitive team with the challenge of winning in the long haul?

Mets GM Omar Minaya will join Gary Cohen and SI.com’s Jon Heyman as special guests during tonight’s Mets Hot Stove, live at 7pm on SNY.

Meanwhile, in a column for SNY.tv, Ted Berg asks, “Is Omar Minaya using team's resources in most effective way,” adding:

“Yes, Minaya has put together competitive teams, and for that he should get credit.  But he's put together competitive teams with monstrous payrolls, and too often he's misread the markets or missed the big picture… Take for example the recent acquisition of Alex Cora… It's $2 million, so you'll tell me it's a drop in the bucket, and to some extent, that's true.  But what if that $2 million is the difference between signing Ben Sheets and not signing Ben Sheets?  Is it still a drop in the bucket then?”

Berg will be interviewing Minaya prior to tonight’s show for a video that will air tomorrow on SNY.tv.

Kudos to SNY-TV's Ted Berg who scouted the Pitt/Georgetown game and here are his thoughts on Greg Monroe and DeJuan Blair.

"...Greg Monroe apparently does not match up as well with DeJuan Blair as he does with Hasheem Thabeet.

Monday against UConn, Monroe used his dribble and outside shot to draw the 7-foot-3 Thabeet away from the paint, then found his teammates on backdoor cuts or penetrated to the basket. On Saturday, Blair, 6-foot-7 but thick, stayed true in the low post and cut off passing lanes when Monroe got the ball at the top of the key, and Monroe suddenly did not look like the sure-fire, right-away NBA star he appeared to be earlier in the week.
