I would have enjoyed spending part of this spring in Port St. Lucie, Fla., but for various reasons that just isn’t possible.
I got a couple of autographs from players in Mets camp anyway on Tuesday. I wrote to almost a dozen players a couple of weeks ago, ones who were new to the organization or who just got their first Mets baseball cards at the end of last season. Today, the first signed cards came back.
Prior to 2012, Josh Edgin had never pitched above the Single-A level. Last year, he jumped from Double-A all the way to the major leagues and enjoyed some mixed results with the Mets. He’s considered a favorite to win a spot in the big league bullpen this year.
Anthony Recker arrived in the Mets organization via a waiver claim from the Chicago Cubs last October. Recker played in a handful of games for both Chicago and Oakland last year, but he spent most of the season in Triple-A. He’s got a good chance to win the backup catcher job for the Mets this year.
Thanks for making my day a little brighter guys.
