Meet the Mets

Jon Niese may have not pitched all that great, but he did get two hits in three at-bats against Anibal Sanchez.

In happier news, Jose Reyes has started taking BP and will see some action today against the triple-A Cardinal squad. Of course, Kevin Kernan says that the Mets need to get him in the Opening Day lineup, no matter what.

Pedro Feliciano made some headlines in a good way as well. Looks like he will be the new setup man.

Matthew Falzano sees Fernando Martinez as the heir apparent to Francoeur. I say, how can we get rid of the guy who somehow knows how to pump this team up?

As he begins fatherhood, Howard Megdal tries to predict what his new daughter has in store as a Met fan. Congrats Howard.

Check out the neat photos from the new McFaddens and the newly Metcentric additions to Citi.

Adam Rubin stopped in to Sports Talk 90.3 to talk about what he's seen so far this Spring.

Around MLB

The Padres named Jon Garland as their opening day starter.

Neftali Feliz is pulling a Jenrry Mejia.

Scott Strickland did not convince the Marlins to give him a place in their bullpen so he might go back to repossessing cars. Awesome.

Mindy McCready is dishing some gossip about Roger Clemens bedroom prowess. That's right, I'm linking to tabloid gossip. I feel kind of dirty.

It's hard to read this Tom Krasovic piece on Mike Cameron and come away thinking that Krasovic really believes what he's saying.
