Spring is in the air, and Santana's on the mound. The Mets have opened camp, and I'm thinking that maybe this really is the year.
Either way, there's plenty of hype behind the team as they've already set a record by selling over 2 million tickets faster than they ever have before. Last season, they set a team record with over 3.8 million fans (3rd in the league). With the sport in its heyday, attendance records are pretty much set every year.
Their new ace is also on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week, seen above.
