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.
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.
Jason Heyward was hit by an offspeed pitch but, good news, the baseball is OK.
