Via Newsday’s David Lennon:

The Mets 2007 roster for Opening Day is complete. Ambiorix Burgos and Lastings Milledge took the final two spots after today’s 8-2 win over the Marlins. Reliever Jon Adkins cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans. In a somewhat surprising move, Chan Ho Park accepted a demotion to New Orleans as well rather than ask for his release, so the Mets were able to retain both Adkins and Park.

And via the Journal News’ John Delcos:

Of all the things that happened today, Chan Ho Park accepting the option was the most surprising. He did because he’s invested too much time with the Mets to go searching for a team now.

“This is better for me because it gets me ready to start,’’ Park said. “I tried the bullpen but I wasn’t comfortable with that.”

One thing Park considered in his decision was the Mets using 13 different starters last year. They’ve got questions this year, and there’s little doubt he’ll eventually get a start.
