Happy St. Patrick's Day, and Let's Go Mets!
Alas, the final weekend of Winter is at hand, leaving us a mere 17 days away from the New York Mets regular season opener in Kansas City against the Royals.
Tonight, our 128th episode of the Rising Apple Report will review highlights of the first 13 Spring Training games played to date.
We'll also delve into Sandy Alderson's remaining financial ability to enhance this year's roster. One thing, however, seems certain - Ruben Tejada will likely not be part of it, as he was released. And so, we'll take another look at the team's potential back-up shortstop situation.
We'll also discuss Matt Harvey's slider, reasonable expectations for David Wright and Neil Walker, if Jacob deGrom's symbolic refusal to sign his contract should be of any concern, and much more.
Rising Apple staff writers Michael Lecolant and Rich Sparago will host this evening's show starting at 9pm (ET) sharp, featuring special guest John Pielli of the Passed Ball Show and MTR Media.
And of course, you're always welcome to call (646-929-0337) and join the conversation.
