    Stottlemyre Still Pitching In
    Gives One More Spring To Help Guidry Adjust

    MONTVILLE -- Mel Stottlemyre is ready to let go, ready to kick back and enjoy a leisurely lifestyle.

    Just give him about six more weeks.

    "I wanted one more spring training next to this man," Stottlemyre said, pointing to Yankees manager Joe Torre.
    Mets tab Rickey to lend his expertise
    All-time steals leader to instruct players at Spring Training

    Henderson had been Cedeno's personal tutor in 1999, sharing his expertise with his younger teammate in a way no one had foreseen when he signed with the Mets in December '98. Henderson taught Cedeno technique, strategy, discipline at the plate and, more important, a don't-care-if-you-get-thrown-out attitude that fueled Cedeno's finest season.

    And now the Mets want Henderson to share his considerable baseball experience with their current roster and specifically with Jose Reyes -- the player who last season approached the club's stolen base record -- five-tool prospect Lastings Milledge and second base aspirant Anderson Hernandez. The Mets have arranged for Henderson, the greatest leadoff hitter and most prolific base stealer of all time, to spend one week as an instructor during Spring Training, after the players return from the World Baseball Classic, and another during the regular season.
