Just a couple of items before I head out for the day to enjoy the 65 degree day today in NYC, so with Roy Orbisonâ€™ Black and White Night coming through my headphones letâ€™s look at some Mets scuttlebutt:
Looks all the angst over Johan Santanaâ€™ elbow was wasted energy by the media and fan base as Santana threw another BP session today and looked sharp and looks to be on track for opening day in Cincinnati:
“I feel pretty good,” Santana said. “I donâ€™t see any reasons why I would not be ready for it. We have been working out, getting everything in the right way, right track, and I donâ€™t think there will be any problems.”
David Lennon watch the session closely:
Of his 36 pitches, Santana threw 22 strikes. He got six swings and misses, with five of them coming on change-up. Even when his change-up was high in the strike zone — a dangerous spot — the group of Mackowiak, Nick Evans, Rene Rivera and Cory Sullivan couldn’t touch it.
Jose Reyes is riding the pine in todayâ€™s WB (S) C game between the D.R and the Flyin Dutchmen. Have I told you how much I hate the WBC?
Bye-bye Dirty Duaner? Could be since the Mets came save some coin by dropping him by April 1. Add in the fact he has not been the same Dirty Duaner since his infamous Rice and Beans run car crash in South Beach as he still canâ€™t hit 90 on the JUGGS , it could be the end of the line for Sanchez as a Met
The more you look at the fight for the 5th spot in the Mets rotation the more I wonâ€™t be surprised if Petey signs with the Mets after the WBC
Wilmer Flores parents have submitted a permission slip to Jerry Manuel so Flores will play shortstop today against the Nationals (1PM Ch. 11) Flores was spotted in the clubhouse this morning with his Menudo lunch box and baseball shoes that light up when he runs (ahhhhhhhhh how cute)
