The New York Mets swept an abbreviated two-game series from the Philadelphia Phillies this week, but I think the bigger news is that the teams were able to play two out of three after Monday’s snow out.
My friend Vinny invited me to join him for Tuesday’s game, but I have to admit I had my doubts that it would be played. It rained most of the afternoon, and a light mist continued to fall through the night.
Mets’ catcher Travis d’Arnaud made his trip to spring training memorable this year. He and his traveling companions spent 9 days driving across the country in a 30-foot RV, d’Arnaud told Daily News writer Anthony McCarron.
“I thought waking up in the Grand Canyon on New Year’s Day and going out to see the sunrise on the Canyon was pretty great,” d’Arnaud told McCarron.
