Meet the Mets

Dillon Gee is down for whatever—and I should be banned for making a Bud Light reference here.

Matt Harvey is still feeling just fine after his first spring outing, which was awesome.

Matt Reynolds is turning heads in Port St. Lucie and might make a push for Wilmer Flores's job at shortstop.

Speaking of players make good impressions, Michael Conforto has been doing that.

Everyone, including Ichiro, was impressed by Steven Matz in his outing in Jupiter yesterday.

What exactly does a baseball captain do, asks David Lennon.

The mood in St. Lucie this year is pretty, pretty, pretty good.

Around the NL East

Eric Young Jr. is making a bid for the starting gig in center field for Atlanta, which just about sums up the outlook for the Braves' season. Not that it matters, but the Braves lost both of their split-squad games yesterday.

Stephen Strasburg made his first spring training start.

Fish Stripes previews Marcell Ozuna's season.

Around MLB

Although the Rangers might very well be without Yu Darvish for a year-plus, the team is still not interested in Dillon Gee.

There's some Casey Stengel history today.
