Grission doesn't take days off:
Inspired by Jason Bay's arrival, the U.S.-Canada hockey rivalry is in full force in the Mets clubhouse. Players are gathering this afternoon at a nearby establishment to watch. If Canada wins, Jeff Francoeur foots the bill. If the U.S. wins, Bay pays. And, if it's a tie after regulation, it's Alex Cora on the hook. There's only one other Canadian in the clubhouse, Shawn Bowman, and he's not in position to share responsibility for a Team Canada loss. "I'd have to call mom for a loan," Bowman said.
