People Show Up Applesauce - Mets new leadership runs first camp, Maine to Philly, Pujols/Cards fail

Meet the Mets

It's Spring Training time again and, despite all the negativity and mystery surrounding the Met ownership's future, we can have some tiny bit of hope for the season. Don't believe me? Well, how about Terry Collins saying that he will use Francisco Rodriguez in the 8th inning if it's a high leverage situation? And, I don't have a link for this, but I can't remember a recent Spring Training where the Mets have this much depth and this many decent possibilities for their open positions. So, I guess it's official, I'm drinking the Spring Training Kool Aid.
