Now We Get Serious

March 16th, 2012 by Ceetar in 2012, Baseball, Mets

Yesterday the Mets took a turn towards the regular season and it’s becoming time to start making sure everyone is getting the work they need.  It’s less than three weeks until Opening Day.

 

The Mets pared down the camp size by sending many of the minor leaguers back to minor league camp.  This move is in conjunction with the regular players getting more playing time instead of coming out after 3-4 innings.  The pitchers will also start pitching deeper into games, as they stretch out their arms towards being able to throw 100 pitches or so once the season starts.  This means the games start resembling real games again, and that means getting rid of the DH.  Starting yesterday with R.A. Dickey, Mets pitchers will bat as normal for the rest of Spring Training.

 

Which is why it’s important for David Wright to heal quickly.  The Mets aren’t quite at the stage where he’d be rushing to be ready to play on Opening Day, but that time is drawing near.  If he’s not playing by early next week, it’ll start to be a real concern that he’ll miss Opening Day.  Ultimately if he’s a week or two late it’s not going to make that much of a difference, but there is something to be said for having your best players healthy and ready to go when the bell rings to start the season.

 

It’s time to get serious.  Let’s work towards rounding out the roster and getting all the regulars healthy and ready to play some baseball!

    How about winning at least one game a week just for the confidence level.

    This team is really bad and you can just see that they are totally overmatched every single game.

    It is going to get ugly very quick, if they keep losing every game during spring training and dot get out of the gate quickly.

Let’s Go Mets!
