PORT ST. LUCIE — Spend an hour with new Mets manager Luis Rojas and you begin to see the character, the strength of will and determination, the baseball-first mentality and the lack of ego.
Sure, there will be sinkholes to navigate because these are the Mets.
Rojas, though, strongly believes there will be Mets magic ahead. But to get there, there has to be unity. That will be his central message to his team when it gathers together this month; pitchers and catchers report Feb. 10 and the first full-squad workout is Feb. 17.
