Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

On a quiet first day of the new year, the Mets' world still revolves around their pursuit of Stephen Drew. Marc Normandin wonders why Drew has drawn such little interest this offseason.

Around the Majors

Former A's/Cardinals left-hander Mark Mulder is back in the major leagues, inking a minor league deal with the Angels. Mulder has not made an MLB appearance since 2008.

The Angels are still likely to pursue Masahiro Tanaka even after the signing of Mulder.

Jeff Todd of MLB Trade Rumors examined how teams have included option years in contracts since 2007.

Yesterday At AA

Former Mets ace David Cone turns 51 today. The right-hander posted a 3.13 ERA in 1209.1 innings across seven seasons for the Mets.
