Report from Port St. Lucie, 4/1
Unless you’re R.A. Dickey, who received two stitches on the right heel after being spiked in Sunday’s game, it was a good day to be a Mets starting pitcher. It was a good day to be a left-handed Mets starting pitcher, at least. The team named Johan Santana its Opening Day starter, then news broke that Jon Niese is in serious talks to sign a pre-arbitration contract extension.
As for me, I’m heading home for a few days of rest before Opening Day. Check back here for plenty of updates then.
