Mets Morning News: Bye bye, Jason Bay

Mike Stobe

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

Meet the Mets

Steve Serby has a Q&A with Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud. In the interview, d'Arnaud calls Noah Syndergaard an "amazing prospect" and talks a little about him.

John Sickels has put out his preliminary Mets prospect list, meaning the top 20 list should be out pretty soon.

Bad news for the Mets Port St. Lucie spring training home, as a proposed move by the Astros and Blue Jays into the area has been put on hold.

Nick Cafardo mentioned that Scott Boras says he's talked to 5 or 6 teams about Stephen Drew.

Word is that former Mets outfielder Jason Bay is set to retire. Bye bye, Mr. Bay.

Around the Majors

The arbitrator's decision in the Alex Rodriguez case leaves a bad taste, says Wendy Thurm at Fangraphs.

While Rodriguez is banned from playing in the major leagues, the Atlantic League's Long Island Ducks have extended an invite to the slugger.

The Phillies have already lost two pitching prospects for most of 2014 due to shoulder surgeries.

Jose Fernandez is just scratching the surface and that's a scary thing for the NL East.
