Notes from Spring Training: 2/21

News and notes will be emerging throughout the day.  This post will be updated as new pieces of information come in (newest at the top)…

  • Adam Rubin is hosting his regular Thursday chat today at 2 PM.  Head here to submit questions/follow along.

Everybody would like to see the Mets as a competitive team. And it’s going to require a higher payroll.

…I expect people to go nuts over this quote, but here’s the thing:  It’s in Weiner’s best interest, as the head of the MLBPA, to have the Mets involved in negotiations for high priced free agents.  His comments aren’t objective, they’re motive driven.  Aside from that, I find Weiner’s remarks uncalled for.  Maybe he should direct some of his attention to the Astros (who have a payroll around $20 million) before making snide remarks about the Mets.

  • Tickets for tomorrow’s Mets intrasquad game are $6 dollars, and all proceeds will go to charity.
  • It was reported yesterday that Jenrry Mejia may be allowed to report to camp in the coming days.  According to Andy Martino, Mejia has finally received his visa and is expected to arrive at camp shortly.
