The Mets dropped their first spring training game tonight against the Nationals by a score of 6-4.

If you were looking for a few game notes that are not OF related:
- Davis hit a homer
- Burke looks serious
- Flores was much better at 2B than expectations
- Havens struggled everywhere

About the OF:
den Dekker would be the star of the night. He went 1-3 at the plate with a run, but his most impressive moment happened in the field where he went over the wall to bring back a homer. Lagares also had a key hit tonight, but he is so far down the depth chart it is difficult to see him moving into the picture. Below are the updated OF stats for all games, including the exhibition games (even though Spring Training is all exhibition, but I guess some are more exhibitiony than others):
