Port St. Lucie Bound
I’m on my way down to Port St. Lucie this afternoon to get an eyewitness report on the status of the New York Mets.
While I’d love to say this is an “official” trip specifically for MetsToday, it’s really an early birthday gift from my wife. But, assuming Florida’s power grid turns back on and I can get an internet connection, I will be posting notes and photos from spring training as often as possible.
Yes, part of the itinerary includes seeing Johan in his “debut” as a Met on Friday afternoon.
If there is anyone or anything in particular you want me to check out, leave a comment and I’ll do my best. And if by chance you are in the area, drop me an email so we can meet for a hot dog at Tradition Field.
Enjoy the Florida sunshine!
Here is a question for you (or any of the readers):
On the Mets official website, Mets.com, Marlon Anderson is listed on the 40-man roster, but is not listed on the team’s official depth chart.
I was wondering why? Does anybody know why?
It’s not a huge deal to not be listed on the depth chart … that’s a pretty loose interpretation and a guesstimate of what someone (likely a college intern) thinks the depth chart is. In other words, it’s not “official”.
Anyone else have better info as to where the depth chart is sourced from?
Joe – enjoy yourself in sunny Florida. Here in CNY, it hasn’t stopped snowing in the past 36 hours, so be sure to soak up some of those solar rays for me!
Some suggestions for your trip:
1. Take come pictures of the facilities/team/games and post them in a photo gallery when you return.
2. See if you can phnagle your way into an interview with somebody. I know, easier said than done (especially sans press pass), but it would be a cool exclusive for you.
3. Of the games you attend, let us know what players impressed you most – keeping a keen eye on those who are bubble players exiting spring training.
4. Have fun, dude. And have a happy early birthday.
Anyway … I will be snapping photos, guessing Duaner’s weight, checking out the Brady Clarks, seeing if Jon Niese is for real, AND picking up souvenirs!
