One of the Amazin’ Perks that you get from being a Mets season ticket holder (I’m not one), is a GM/Player press conference. According to eyewitness feedback, Sandy Alderson made plenty of “corny” jokes, and poked fun at the lack of excitement this offseason, sort of like he did during the BBWAA awards diner. According to MetsBlog.com, Alderson stated that Harvey is more likely to start during the Citi Field home opener, opposed to the Washington road game, which is the traditional opening day. So, that begs the question? Who is the Mets opening day starter? Do they go with the young blood in deGrom? Or do they give the nod to a veteran in Colon or Niese? All questions to be answered in Spring Training, which starts in two weeks!
