New Mets center fielder Andres Torres walked off the field in the seventh inning against Atlanta after reinjuring his left calf while chasing Tyker Pastornicky's first big league hit, a one-out triple. Torres strained his left calf March 20 and missed two weeks of spring training. He walked and scored in the sixth inning to give the Mets a 1-0 opening-day lead. In the seventh, Pastornicky hit a liner to right-center and Torres took a bad approach on the ball. He failed to make a leaping catch and, after a few strides, he pulled up with a hop step. Torres walked toward the infield where he was met by a trainer. The Mets acquired Torres from San Francisco for outfielder Angel Pagan.

I'll Say Goodbye, And Hello

We've arrived, kids. A long spring training and a longer off-season is finally over. Baseball is here, and not a moment too soon.
