Report from Port St. Lucie, 2/20

Hello, and welcome to the first day of spring training. I’m going to attempt to work this blog more thoroughly into my Mets coverage this spring, using this space to highlight the best content on as well as some tidbits that may not make it to the main site.

The big news today, on the report date for pitchers and catchers, was that Jon Niese underwent a rhinoplasty last October at the behest of former teammate Carlos Beltran. Originally a cosmetic decision, the surgery ultimately allowed Niese to breathe better, helping him do his cardiovascular workouts this winter and drop 10 pounds.

Much, much more tomorrow, when Terry Collins officially addresses the media for the first time.

I think it needs to be inquired why would Carlos Beltran suggest this in the first place; he’s gone so why would anyone take his advice?
