Note: Players Leave for WBC

The 15 players from the Mets who will play in the WBC all left St. Lucie yesterday, including:

Oliver Perez, Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, Alex Cora, Carlos Delgado, Pedro Feliciano, Nelson Figueroa, J.J. Putz, David Wright and Francisco Rodriguez.

obviously, exactly how long each player will be away will depend on how their respective teams do in the tournament, but i think they’re all looking at roughly two to three weeks away from the Mets…

Manuel’s call to his players has been that, once they return, that each player bring the same sense of camaraderie to the Mets, who are like a family and country as well.
