On Deck: Game 1 Preperation

Mets at Marlins     4:10pm     Santana vs. Hendrickson    TV: SNY

Much like the Mets, I’m preparing for the first game of the season. I’m connecting to the painfully slow Internet connection in my hotel searching for some information about the Mets opening day game.

Bart Hubbach reports for the Post today that Johan Santana and the rest of the team worked out at Dolphins Stadium yesterday.

“This is what I’ve been waiting for,” he said with a smile yesterday after the Mets’ workout at Dolphin Stadium. “There are a lot of expectations, and I’m fine with that. I know exactly what I have to do.”

Today is the day that we’ve been waiting for as Mets fans. Today clears the slate from last seasons “Collapse”. Now that’s history and Willie Randolph and the team will be evaluated by baseball historians in much the same way that Gene Mauch and the 1964 Phillies are.

Now we get to finally move on. There have have been hundreds, maybe thousands, of articles and columns and books written about “The Collapse”. That’s all over now and a new season begins.

Today is Day 1 of the run for the 2008 World Series victory.
