Meet the Mets

Buck Showalter said the Mets won’t break camp until March 29, the day before Opening Day in Miami.

He also said he will split up Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander so one of them can start the Mets home opener.

Bullpens at Clover Park are longer on the field.

The Mets are confident but the feeling of how last season ended is still fresh in their minds, and know it is “all about the endgame” this year.
