B-Mets excited to begin title defense

What's better than winning one championship? Winning two! Coming off the first Eastern League title in 20 years, the Binghamton Mets are ready to embark on their title defense. At the helm, the club's all-time winningest manager, Pedro Lopez. After the September 12th clincher, Lopez told Team President Mike Urda that he was coming back next year to do it all again.

Next year is now, and the B-Mets can't wait to bring another title home to Binghamton.

"It's something that as a baseball player, that's the highest it gets for you as far as winning a championship," said Jayce Boyd who had the walk-off RBI single in Game 3 against Richmond. "That's what you strive to do and it was a great night and something I'll never forget."

"It's fun, to be around these guys is a privilege, obviously coming off of the title it makes it even more special," said top outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo.

"We talked about all last year, six more wins, and now I'm trying to think what's the next one going to be," said Lopez. "I think it's all about pride, its about going out there and defending the championship."

The B-Mets open the season in Akron on April 9th. Matt Koch will start on the mound against the Rubber Ducks.
