Report from Port St. Lucie, 3/7

A quiet day at camp gave me a chance to catch up with Josh Lewin, WFAN’s new color commentator for Mets radio broadcasts. You can read my profile of Lewin and the rock band he left behind in Texas on

The rest of the day was quiet mostly because Johan Santana did little more than receive a massage on the day following his first big league action in 18 months. Santana will throw again in some form on Thursday, which should be far more telling.

Also, an apology for the lack of pictures lately. Here’s one of Ruben Tejada hanging around the cage; I’ll try to be more diligent regarding pictures in the future.
