Report from Port St. Lucie, 2/24
For once, a quiet day at Mets camp. No ripples today, save for a couple minor news stories: that Johan Santana will make his Grapefruit League debut on March 6 rather than March 5, and that Mike Pelfrey rolled his ankle during fielding drills. No red flags in either instance.

Here’s a picture I snapped today of Wright relaxing before batting practice with Daniel Murphy, who is also quoted in the story:
