Found March 23, 2012 on Mets Merized Online:
The MLB Network will feature the Mets on “30 Clubs in 30 Days” tonight, airing 8:00 PM. Anthony DiComo weites: Featured on the show are interviews with David Wright, Johan Santana, Jason Bay, Terry Collins and quite a few others. In addition, R.A. Dickey gives a tour of the Mets’ facility in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and Daniel Murphy and Tim Teufel demonstrate what they’ve been working on at second base. It’s a pretty cool series and MLB Network does a great job taking a comprehensive look at each team as they prepare  for a new season. I’ll be setting my DVR to record it and watch it tomorrow.

With minor league prospect Kirk Nieuwenhuis suffering with a strained oblique, manager Terry Collins will experiment with...
