Meet the Mets
Word is that the Mets and Orioles are still talking trade and recently discussed not only Ike Davis but Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda as well. The Mets still like Eduardo Rodriguez, who the Orioles are not inclined to part with at the moment.
We've heard a lot about the development soon to come surrounding Citi Field, but there's more coming to the area. A convention center and a 25-story hotel are going to be built across the Grand Central Parkway from the Mets' home.
