Meet the Mets
Some good signs from yesterday's 4-2 win over Boston. Fernando Martinez homered. Mike Pelfrey pitched decently and Jenrry Mejia continued his amazing spring.
I'll use that as a launching point. Mejia news: Count Mike Cameron as generally unimpressed. The Post had a real life edition of Point-Counterpoint about Mejia with Kevin Kernan comparing him to Mariano Rivera. Joel Sherman
calls Kevin an ignorant slut disagrees.
General rotation stuff: God Bless Buckner thinks that the Mets rotation will improve from last year's performance. And Surviving the Citi takes a look at what on Earth is going on with Oliver Perez.
Some things that might make you feel slightly better. Tim Marchman thinks the Mets have the third best core talent in baseball. And this guy managed to make a video of all the good things that happened to the 2009 Mets. It's about 2 minutes.
Something that might make you feel bad. The Mets had Darren O'Day at one point last year.
Texas Ranger manager Ron Washington admitted to recently using cocaine. Here's what people are saying. Washington apparently was being blackmailed by a disgruntled former employee.
The Nationals made a somewhat surprising move yesterday by releasing Elijah Dukes. Howard Megdal argues the Mets need to be in on this guy. Fire Jim Bowden doesn't mind the move, but hates the process.
Joe Posnanski laughs off the Albert Pujols/Ryan Howard trade talk.
Derrick Turnbow, apparently in Spring Training with the Marlins, was released after a serious arm injury.
Cliff Lee has been suspended for the first five games of the regular season.
