David Wright refused to say which Mets team he was rooting for today.

The Mets played a 7 1/2 inning intrasquad game this morning and there were some items worth noting. Dillon Gee, Jenrry Mejia, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Noah Syndergaard, Steven Matz, Jose Valverde, Carlos Torres, Jeurys Familia and Joel Carreño all logged at least an inning.  The lineups were as follows:

Home

Matt den Dekker, cf
Kirk Nieuwenhuis, lf
Wilmer Flores, 2b
Andrew Brown, dh
Cesar Puello, rf
Matt Clark, 1b
Zach Lutz, 3b
Juan Centeno, c
Anthony Seratelli, ss

Away

Brandon Nimmo, cf
Danny Muno, 2b
Brandon Allen, 1b
Anthony Recker, dh
Eric Campbell, 3b
Cory Vaughn, rf
Dustin Lawley, lf
Kevin Plawecki, c
Wilfredo Tovar, ss

Here are some blurbs from beat reporters on Twitter:

Syndergaard tossed two innings and allowed four hits, one earned run and struck out five. He was hitting 96-97 with his fastball and his first batter of the spring was leadoff man Brandon Nimmo who struck out on a hook from hell. Wilfredo Tovar had an RBI single to score Cory Vaughn for Thor’s only run.

Jeurys Familia looked very sharp and pitched a 1-2-3 fifth, striking out Matt Clark and Zach Lutz.

Danny Muno. went 2-for-2 with a home run, a walk and a stolen base. His homer came off Dillon Gee.

Carlos Torres, who was a pleasant surprise for the Mets last season, tossed two perfect innings, retiring Wilmer Flores, Andrew Brown and Cesar Puello in 4th and striking out three.

Daisuke Matsuzaka was a little wild allowed two unearned runs in his first inning of work on an errant throw and a passed ball. However he retired Dustin Lawley, Kevin Plawecki, and Wilfredo Tovar in order in his second and final inning of work.

Jenrry Mejia pitched two scoreless innings and allowed a Matt Clark single, two walks and whiffed four of his teammates.

By the way, Wilmer Flores started at second base and went 0-for-3.

Tweets apropos of nothing but funny nonetheless:

Tomorrow the Mets play the Nationals, can’t wait..
