Blog Roundup: First Week of “Spring”

Yes, it’s February, but MLB teams officially opened their Spring Training camps on Monday.  The time for speculation is growing short, while the moment of truth (Opening Day) fast approaches.

The Blogs are warming up:

  • MMO has an early mock draft.
  • The Bitter Bill says Jon Niese is breathing easier.
  • Adam Rubin feels the Mets need a healthy Johan Santana if they are to have any chance at all in the East.
  • Mets Fever is bearish on Zach Lutz‘s chances of making the team, especially since he’s wearing an O-Lineman’s number.
  • LoHud compares the Mets to a PBS drama.
  • Amazin’ Avenue has an old clip with some sage advice from Vin Scully.

Stay tuned to Mets Today for all your Spring Training coverage.


Vote For Citi Field

Budget Travel magazine is accepting nominations for “15 Places Kids Should See Before 15.” I nominated Citi Field for obvious reasons: baseball is America’s Pastime, and where else can a kid meet Mr. Met?

Please go to the Budget Travel website and vote a “thumbs up” for Citi Field.

Regardless of how disappointed you are with the way the Mets are looking lately, or how you feel about the financial and legal situations, we are all Mets fans, we are all baseball fans, Citi Field is in fact a nice place to watch a ballgame, and wouldn’t we rather have a kid watch baseball in Flushing rather than, say, the Bronx or Philadelphia? Lord knows we don’t need any more Yankees fans or Phillies fans on this planet.

Go here to vote for Citi Field. Scroll down, find Citi field, click on the “thumbs up” button, and add in any comments if you wish.
