Jerry Manuel has quickly instituted early batting practice, optional for the players.
I like this, and it seemed to only pop up when there was a dire need under Willie Randolph.
Today, as always, David Wright was out taking the early BP. Joining him, among others, was Brian Schneider and Carlos Delgado, someone who rarely came out early with the previous manager.
Hopefully it pays off, since the Mets struggled last time in Colorado, especially against tonight's starter, Aaron Cook. Last time the Mets visited Denver, Cook tallied a complete game, four hitter on May 25.
