Oakland A’s getting ready for a trip to Citi Field
Anyone else upset that the riveting Mets-Angels series is over? The Mets sure played yesterday like it was an exhibition game to the point where I feel Terry Collins pulled Jon Niese the way a hockey coach pulls his goalie to wake up his team. Granted, Niese was far from sharp yesterday as he had no feel for his curve, leaving the Angels running to the batter’s box for that first pitch fast ball, the Mets defense especially the Ginger Turner, let Niese down and the rest of the team looked sluggish. I’m sure the club will perk up when those Swingin’ Oakland A’s come to town tomorrow. Thank God the Mets miss Vida Blue and Ken Holtzman this time around.
David Wright was out early at Citi Field playing catch and taking ground balls while kneeling down. Wright should be ready by February when he reports to Cardinals spring training camp in Jupiter FL
At least there was a Wright sighting, where in the world is Ike Davis?
Went to Cyclones-Baby Highlanders game yesterday with the added attraction of Phil Hughes making a rehab start. Kevin Kernan was there too; in fact he sat a section over from me.
First impression of some of the Cyclones, I like what I saw in Daniel Muno both at bat but he made. Third baseman Richard Lucas for a guy with some heft played some nice “D” and first baseman Luke Stewart reminds me of Lucas Duda with his size, hopefully as the season goes on he’ll show some power.
