Spring training rolled on yesterday, with the Mets facing the Tigers. Things didn't go well for Dillon Gee, as his control was just terrible.

Tom Seaver has been battling Lyme disease, but he's been feeling better of late. Get well soon, Tom.

Spring training numbers really don't mean an awful lot, but in the case of Ike Davis, it's nice to see him getting off to a better start than last year.

Yesterday at AA:

Chris took a look at the first of many outfielders that was released this spring that would possibly be worth looking at for the Mets. Hooray outfielders!

The top 50 Mets of all time list rolled on with #36 Bernard Gilkey.

David looked back in March 14 in Mets history, a day that saw George Weiss become the team's first president.

Around Baseball:

The Dominican Republic beat the United States 3-1 in the World Baseball Classic last night, advancing to the semifinals with the win. David Wright was forced out of that game with a sore back, and former Met R.A. Dickey threw five solid innings.

The U.S. loss sets up a must-win game against Puerto Rico, in which the winner reaches the semis while the loser heads home. Former Met Nelson Figueroa will be pitching for Puerto Rico, with Ryan Vogelsong going for the United States.

Ever been to a baseball game and wondered why you couldn't find a taco with a shell made out of bacon? Those days are in the past.

Our own Eno Sarris looked at the extension that Carlos Gomez signed with the Brewers to determine if he'll be worth it. He'd look awfully nice in Flushing right now.

Grant Brisbee looked back at one of the more puzzling TRAIDs of 2012 over at Baseball Nation. I love that the Marlins are in the NL East.

One of the more interesting names on next winter's free agent market will certainly be Tim Lincecum, and some of the folks over at BtB think there is reason to believe he'll be better in 2013.
