An important day for the Mets. Pedro Martinez is feeling it. Says he’s open about next year, but this year will take care of that.
If he’s healthy and has a good year I don’t see him walking away. If he can play he will.
Another positive is Brian Schneider, who plans to play tomorrow at Winter Haven.
We saw Paul Lo Duca today, but even though he’s been hurt, I’d still rather have Schneider.
Schneider is better defensively and Lo Duca is no great loss offensively.
When Lo Duca pushed Willie Randolph to come off the DL and got hurt, and when he was suspended for blowing his cool and got tossed, I figured that was it for him as a Met. All that missed time, might have cost the Mets at least one game.
