Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton)
After a long 2011, and a quiet off season, NYSEG Stadium is alive and well as the Binghamton Mets are back to open their 21st season of baseball.
The B-Mets held their first official workout in their home stadium this afternoon.
Manager Pedro Lopez believes the pitching staff will be one of the team's strengths.
The starters include the New York Mets top prospect in Zack Wheeler, as well as B-Mets pitcher of the year Collin McHugh and organizational pitcher of the year Darin Gorski.
Players say they can't wait to get the season started.
"I think we've got a lot of talent here. We've got a lot of guys that could very well be at Triple A or wherever. I think we've got a lot of experience, a lot of guys that have been here before so that's going to help us out a lot."
"I think we're really deep, especially in the bullpen and starting pitching. Our pitching compared to last year is day and night better I think and not to say anything bad about the guys we had last year but I think we're going to go out there and compete every night. We have speed, we have power. We're going to be in the ballgame with pitching and defense."
The B-Mets will have one more day of workouts before opening the season Thursday night at 6:35 when they host the Akron Aeros.
