The New York Mets said the club isn’t talking to the agent for free-agent outfielder Nelson Cruz. (Read more of that in earlier post today).
Also today in Port St. Lucie:
* The New York Post reported Sandy Alderson would like to remain in his position for another two to three years.
* ESPN reported the Pittsburgh Pirates are monitoring Mets camp about Ike Davis.
* Collins said Cory Mazzoni will get a chance to win a spot in the bullpen.
* Collins said Eric Young must increase his on-base percentage, and a possible way is to increase his bunting.
