The Mets are saying Orlando Hernandez is working on his mechanics and there’s plenty of time. However, I’m starting to wonder whether the Opening Day roster might be a reach. If he doesn’t get in a game this week, the other pitchers will be two starts ahead of him. Plus, with the off days early in the season, they can go without a fifth starter.
The injuries are a concern because they are a reminder of how fragile a season can be. One or two key players going down can sink a team.
There aren’t many players who drew your attention every time they came to the plate as did Darryl Strawberry. You knew he could go WAY deep on any pitch.
These and anything else on your mind are on the table.
