The Mets will honor the late Gary Carter this season with a “KID 8” patch on all players and coaches uniforms.
Here’s a photo of the patch that the Mets posted on their Facebook page earlier today:
Classy move by the team in remembrance of a classy ballplayer.
Rest in peace, Kid.
The Mets beat the Nationals again in Spring Training, 4-3, after a ninth inning Mets rally. Miguel Cairo tied the game at 3 and Luis Garcia won the game with solo homeruns.
Amazin’ magic clips Nationals:
The Mets used a bullpen by committee starting with Mike Matthews, who gave up a run in two innings. The run was scored in the bottom of the second inning, when Brad Wilkerson hit a solo home run.
The “bullpen by committee” approach worked well enough for the Mets, but none of the pitchers really seemed to stand out as exceptional.
