Rick Peterson  is blinding the Mets with science . The former pitching coach of the Oakland A’s is known for his motto: “In God We Trust. All others must have data.” Peterson currently has some of the younger Mets pitchers strapped up with reflexive markers–which are connected to high-speed cameras and computers–to evaluate their pitching motions, at Dr. James Andrews’ American Sports Medicine Institute. Very interesting stuff, indeed. In case you missed it, here is Jonah Keri’s highly informative intereview with Peterson  for Baseball Prospectus last year.
At the same time, deep in the heart of Florida, Jose Reyes and Kaz Matsui —the Mets’ new double play duo—are working out for the first time together.
Meanwhile, the Yankees  are talking with Scott Boras about signing first baseman Travis Lee to a minor league deal.
Six days until pitchers and catchers report for the Yankees; eight days for the Mets.
