Cameron Makes ST Debut

In his first game of the Spring, Mike Cameron also debuted in his new position - right field - on Thursday. Cammy went 1-3 and dropped a ball.

A two-time Gold Glove winner, the 32-year-old Cameron didn't get his first chance in right until the fifth inning when he casually caught on the run a flyball slicing down the foul line.

On Tony Giarratano's fly in the sixth, Cameron shielded his eyes but the ball fell in front of him and was ruled a double.

"It was definitely catchable," Cameron said. "But it's just something I'm going to have to learn, especially with the different spin on the ball."

Victor Zambrano has the makings of an ace. At least, that's what thinks. I guess we'll see how right they are come June or July. Zambrano went four innings on 89 pitches on Thursday, giving up three hits and K'ing six.

The Mets lost to the Tigers yesterday, 6-3, and WFAN reported that Mike DeJean has injured his calf muscle. Yahoo! Sports calls it "tightness in his calf." (see the "Notes" section at the bottom of this article). The report of that injury spurred several web sites and new organizations into posting that Ugueth Urbina either is already a Met, will most likely be a Met (although that article was in yesterday's Newsday, so it had nothing to do with DeJean), and an assumption that Ugueth is a Met.

According to yesterday's edition of The Journal News, Kerry Robinson leads the Mets in the NCAA Tourney bracket.

Backup outfielder Kerry Robinson leads the team's NCAA tournament pool. In fact, he has three of the top four entries. For the record, he likes North Carolina. (The Journal News)

The Mets play the Marlins at their place at 7:05 tonight. The game will be televised on FSNY.

The Daily News says that Pedro was pretty pumped to recieve a new t-shirt from Marlon Anderson. Apparently, the shirt reads "Who's Your Daddy" in Spanish on the front (Quien es tu padre?"). On the back, the shirt says "Jesus." Marlon has inspired me - you can buy tees with the same stuff on it on RTK's Store. From now until the end of April, the Quien es tu Padre shirts will be listed at the base price, meaning they will be sold at no profit to me. Buy 'em up, and we'll be representin' come Opening Day!
