Open Thread: Mets vs Orioles

Here is today's swag contest game form (more info here). Today's game is against the Orioles at 1pm and will be the last grapefruit league game of the year (i.e. the last spring training game played in Florida). Orlando Hernandez and Mike Pelfrey are both on the docket to pitch and, rightly or not, could be pitching for the last spot in the rotation. They both stunk up the joint last time out, so better efforts today would be encouraging for everyone involved.

The game will not be televised, but you can listen to the audio if you are an MLB.tv or Gameday Audio subscriber, or follow along on the internets with this secret gameday link.
