Dispatches from Port St. Lucie, 2/28

Grapefruit League Game 1 is in the books. The Mets lost, 5-4, after leading most of the afternoon.

A rare night game at Digital Domain Park offered a potential glimpse of the future, pitting Matt Harvey against Nationals uber-prospect Bryce Harper. Harper won their lone battle of the evening, drawing a walk.

The big news of the day was that a federal judge decided not to dismiss trustee Irving Picard’s case against the Mets, ensuring that the two sides will go to trial on March 19.
