Men, some of them even with METS written on their chests, played baseball this weekend! I know some don’t get excited for exhibition baseball, but it’s a beautiful day in New York and the familiar sounds of baseballs are in the air and on the screen. Opening Day doesn’t seem far away.
It’s not even about the results. The results this early in the Grapefruit League season are practically worthless. That players are getting reps and throwing pitches and swinging bats and catching and throwing the baseball is enough. Not that that will stop fans and even beat writers from proclaiming who will make the team and who will get cut. I’m not ready for that yet; Those are late spring decisions.
I’ll be headed to Florida for three Mets games in mid-March. I’ll have some fun tweeting pictures and observations and just basking in the excitement of being at a baseball game. Until then, read my posts from week about what to watch, and what not to, in Spring Training.
