Today’s the first opportunity to see the majority of the starting position players in action as the Mets take on the Cardinals at 1:10 p.m. today in Port St. Lucie. The game will be aired on SNY and the MLB network.
Although Jose Reyes won’t be in the lineup due to some follow-up after his physical, Jason Bay, David Wright, Luis Castillo, Jeff Francoeur and Daniel Murphy will be. Fernando Tatis and Henry Blanco also will be making their Spring Training debuts.
Perhaps more interesting is today’s starting pitcher, R.A. Dickey. He is the knuckleballer the Mets picked up from the Twins in the off-season. It’ll most likely drive the opposing batters nuts. Here they are trying to get some solid batting practice and they get an atypical pitcher.
