2012 Mets Spring Training: Washington Vs. New York To Kick Things Off

It's finally arrived. The Mets will get their 2012 schedule started with a contest against a NL East foe, the Washington Nationals at Digital Domain Park.

New York will send Dillon Gee to the mound for openers. Gee is firmly entrenched in the middle of the regular season rotation, so this will be the start of him rounding into shape. He was a pleasant surprise last year, going 13-6 to lead the team in wins. Of course, his season started much better than it finished after getting off to such a hot start.

It's also a fresh start for third baseman David Wright, who had a miserable 2011 campaign filled with injury and disappointment. It's safe to assume moving the fences in at Citi Field won't hurt any, but it will be interesting to watch how he plays this month. That won't start tonight however, as Wright is still recovering from a rib cartilage issue.

Lets not forget about Ike Davis either, looking to prove he's the real deal after such a tough year.

In the other dugout Monday night is a promising young Nationals team. Washington finally has some pitching to boost, with Stephen Strasburg returning for what hopefully will be a full season along with the newly acquired Gio Gonzalez. The Nats have already played two games in Spring Training, dropping both to Houston.

It's a great time of year...baseball is back.

Time: 6:10 p.m. ET
