It's Almost Friday Applesauce

I've actually got a really busy morning, so this is going to be a fun-sized Applesauce. Here goes:

Around Port St. Lucie

Johan's spring debut is TONIGHT vs. the Marlins at 7:10. The game can be seen on SNY or MLB.TV.

K-Rod closed out last night's Venezuelan 5-3 victory over the United States. 

Metsmerized yearns for what might have been with Scott Kazmir.

So much for Citi Field being an exclusively baseball stadium. A UFL football team will play its home games there this season.

The Village Voice hits the Mets for their high ticket prices. I still don't get the need for 20-something different price levels.

The 7-Train stop will no longer just be Willets Point. Welcome to the new Mets/Willets Point stop.

Around the NL East

The Nationals sign journeyman starter Kip Wells.

Met-killer and Marlin Alfredo Amezaga (I'd love to see his stats vs. the Mets) is out 4-6 weeks with a sprained left knee.

Meanwhile Marlin pitcher Chris Volstad was taken out of yesterday's game after getting hit by a line drive.

Here's a story on Jeff Francoeur's new approach to hitting that's not producing great results to date. Oh, and Chipper will be back in the lineup for Team USA this weekend.

Kyle Kendrick got roughed up in yesterday's game against the Braves. Looks like his chances to be the team's fifth starter have gone up in smoke as he has had just an awful spring.

Around MLB

MLB has begun investigating the large number of Dominican-born players who have misrepresented their age.

Jonathan Papelbon is not a fan of Manny right now.


That's all for me today. Have a good one!
