Eisenhower Applesauce - Ike hits grand slam, Mets beat Cards, GMJ and Wright homer

Meet the Mets

The Mets outslugged St. Louis 17-11 in yesterday's Grapefruit League Action. What you should know: Ike Davis crushed (that is not an exaggeration either) a grand slam late in the game against some guy named Francisco Samuel. Jason Bay was hitless in his Met debut. David Wright homered in his first AB. GMJ also homered as the wind was blowing strongly out to right. Check out some of the awesome game photos from NY Future Stars. For further recap, here's Ted Berg's experiment with a game recap.

What should we think about the Mets signing Kiko Calero? Well, the Fish Stripes' reaction is a good start.

Can you believe that the Reds aren't interested in GMJ even after he hit a spring home run? Either way, us Met fans were actually feeling something less than dread about Matthews yesterday.

For once, here's some good injury news to report. Reyes is fine and Santana threw to live batters.

Jason Bay reflects on his previous St. Lucie days.

Ike Davis's grand slam can only add to the speculation that he'll be starting in Queens. Daily Stache doesn't go that far, but certainly implies it.
