Spring Training 2012 - Day 5

Day 5 - March 26, 2012 - Mets-Cardinals @ Jupiter

After taking a day away from baseball to head to Key Biscayne for the Sony Tennis Open, I was back on Monday in Jupiter for the Mets-Cardinals game.

Where do I begin? Yes, that's right. David Wright made his first Spring Training appearance in 2012 (who needs 30 days of games anyway?). 1 for 2 with a single in the first (good swing) and a couple of chances at 3B, including making a diving stop near the line and a couple of really strong throws (something I've criticized in the past). Oh, and that mystery ace pitcher, Johan Santana, started for the Mets. He had a bad first inning, but bounced back strong. The Mets had a big rally in the 7th to take the lead and eventually win the ballgame.

Before the game, I did manage to snag a couple of autographs over by the Mets dugout. Josh Thole, Vinny Rottino, Lucas May, and 1986 Met champion and new Third Base Coach Tim Teufel. I did miss a few other autographs because of the crowd, including David Wright.
