Pitchers and catchers officially report to Mets Spring Training Monday, but that's usually just a formality. A lot of guys have been down at camp for weeks, and while the deadline on paper is February 12th, it looks like most of the starting rotation hopefuls are already there. Seems like in some cases, if you're on time, you're late.
The above was shot by Anthony Causi, and it's been making the rounds on social media. Re-posting a photo you find in a Google image search (when the photographer is unknown) is one thing, but if you screenshot something and repost, give the photographer their credit. It's the right thing to do. Great work as always, Anthony.
With question marks all around the diamond, if this team is going to compete, it all starts with the pitching. We limped to the Wild Card on the arms of Lugo/Gsellman in 2016, and we all saw what happened last year. Home runs are beautiful, but W's start in the arms.
Mets fans everywhere felt unstoppable when we thought the team was stacked with Aces. We need that feeling back, and it could be right around the corner.
Our first nighttime weekend game of the season! Let's go big for this one. Swing by to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down a couple cold ones.
