David Wright has rejoined the Mets for Grapefruit League action after his WBC heroics and disappointing semifinal loss. Now he gets back to the task at hand: Growing a mustache so that the Mets can win the 2009 World Series.

David Lennon speculates that Jerry Manuel will probably rest David until Friday to let him catch his breath and stay off his bum toe. But come Friday, it’ll be all David all the time. Except for when the Mets have an off day. Or when Jerry gives David a rest. But the rest of the time…
Fernando Tatis will play third today and star prospect Reese Havens will make his Grapefruit Leage debut when he starts at SS.
As always, Let’s go Mets!
