3/23/2014 | Beckham's Opening Day status remains uncertain

3/23/2014 | Richards will gladly take contact outs over K's

3/23/2014 | Mejia making a run at being Mets' fifth starter
With multiple decisions remaining for the Mets, Jenrry Mejia is doing his best to make one of them as difficult as possible. Despite a perception from the earliest days of camp that Daisuke Matsuzaka was favored to win the Mets' fifth-starter's job, Mejia is still very much alive in that competition. His five innings of one-run ball Sunday against the Nationals only solidified that perception in his penultimate start of spring.

3/23/2014 | Veteran workhorse Buehrle has been in fine form
