    Mets Pitchers and Catchers report on February 17

    69 days until Wednesday, February 17, 2016

    Mets Pitchers and Catchers will report to Spring Training in Port St. Lucie on February 17, the team announced.

    Position players will report on Feb. 24

    First full squad workout will be on Feb. 26.

    The Mets' first preseason game is March 3 against the Nationals.

    Their first regular season game is Sunday night, April 3 against the Royals in Kansas City. <-- Seriously?!?! That's just fuckin' mean, man! Before the first pitch of the season is thrown, the Mets have to watch the Royals get their World Series rings. :golfclap:

    Do they still play baseball? I thought that ended after the '94 strike.

    they don't need to pick a fight

    they just have to goof on how fucking hopeless his fucking team was the previous October


    the guy in the Porsche doesn't have to prove he can beat the guy in the souped up civic in a race
    from a stop light--he's clearly beat him



    but pitchers and catchers reporting is the best time of the year

    For awhile I thought @Kanye and @Chriza were a couple.. but now since you mention it, I'm rethinking this cuz I'm sure both enjoy being the catchers.

    True.

    When your team is built on pitching you can't have both the defense and the hitting be sporadic. At least one of them has to be consistent all year.

    I check in on metsblog a couple times a day. It's a good website, they update sometimes a half-dozen times a day in the winter. I don't know how they do it.

    I have always avoided bleacher report period, there are always better options.
