Brad Barr-US PRESSWIRE

Your Sunday morning dose of New York Mets and Major League Baseball news, notes, and links

Meet the Mets

Matt Wieters and the Orioles may begin talking contract soon.

WAR: what is it good for? Rob Neyer reasons that it's good for some things, though it's not the end-all-be-all.
