Mets 2009 Spring Training Schedule

I added the 2009 spring traing schedule to the site. For those of us planning to be in Florida this spring, it’ll give us dates and times for each of the games. I’ll continue adding to the schedule by adding maps to the specific locations of each stadium so you can easily get driving directions from Google Maps.

You can also access the schedule on the navigation above. Just click “Spring Training Schedule”.

Fox Sports Dayn Perry Ignores the Mets

How could Dayn Perry of Fox Sports write a column yesterday about teams that are affected by spring training injuries and not even mention the Mets? Of course, Fox is baseball’s national television partner. This type of thing makes me very wary of national media outlets and their motivation. I realize that the Mets as one of baseball’s big market teams get a lot of attention but completely ignoring them for an article about injuries is ridiculous. Perry is one of Fox’s premier baseball columnists, along with Ken Rosenthal, and I like his work. But this week’s column really got under my skin.
