Braves at Mets [PSL] 1:10pm TV: SNY Radio: None
What to watch: With only five games left in spring training I don’t think that either team will “show” much to a division rival at this point. Look for younger players to get the bulk of the work in this game. Players that are still on the bubble of making the roster should see most of the playing time.

What to watch: Probably the most interesting thing about this game is getting to see former Met Jay Payton who may be trade bait to replace Moises Alou for a while in left field.

What to watch: Orlando Hernandez and Mike Pelfrey are both scheduled to pitch. That’s right… El Duque will actually pitch in a game situation. The second round of the NCAA tournament continues tomorrow so get the picture-in-picture going on your TV.
Nationals vs. Mets [PSL] 1:10pm TV: SNY Radio: None
Once again, the Mets are up against the NCAA tournament on TV. The reason to watch: Pedro is scheduled to pitch. I’d like to see Martinez work on some velocity. He claims to be unconcerned about it but I think he needs more than a mid-80’s fastball to be effective.

You’ll need a TV with picture-in-picture for this one. It’s on at the same time as the first round of the NCAA tourney on CBS.
In my new series at The Mets Report called “On Deck” I’ll preview the day from a Mets fan perspective, of course! This should serve as the guide for you to plan your day around. If there’s a day game, call in sick to work. If there’s a night game, avoid making plans or cancel them immediately with the first excuse that comes to mind. If there’s a blood drive at Shea Stadium, warm up your veins because you’ll be the first one in line.
