Spring training recap February 18th

For all who still follow this blog for some reason, you will be rewarded over the next couple days, as I'm down here once again. I didn't take any cell phone pictures today, but will post some throughout the rest of the week. Couple highlights from today, although it was a slow day.

1) Terry Collins is very excited about the potential arms in the bullpen to a couple fans, specifically naming Jeff Walters (Binghamton closer from last year), Farnsworth and Valverde.

2) In regards to Valverde, TC said he called Leyland to ask what was the story with Valverde, and he said Leyland took the blame, saying he overused him.

3) I saw David Wright, Ike Davis, Lucas Duda and Josh Satin take bp, with nothing that impressive to note. The next group was the hard hitting Eric Young Jr., Ruben Tejada, and then Chris Young. Tejada looks slimmer than he did in years past, but still soft hitting. Chris Young did make loud contact, but not sure if that was just because EY and Tejada did nothing.

4) Z Wheeler threw a bullpen which the common fan can't tell results, but his mechanics were free and easy.

5) Bartolo Colon is very wide, but I don't think I'm the only one reporting this.

6) Pitchers were performing PFP's, with nothing too exciting to report.

If you have anything you want to specifically want to be reported about just let me know.

Let's go Mets!
