It was a fairly ho-hum day in Ft. Myers this afternoon, as the Mets sent much of their reserves to face many of the Red Sox regulars. The good news is Erik Goeddel made his first relief appearance of the spring, even though the results weren’t exactly what he was expecting. Goeddel will now battle with Jim Henderson over the next week and a half for a spot in the Mets Opening Day bullpen.
