Mets Morning News: Mike Baxter wuz Robbed

The fallout from the Salfino tweets continues, Jason Bay might be bound for Cleveland, and Mike Trout won an award unanimously. Nah, not that award

Mike Stobe

Meet the Mets

The Mets have a new strength and conditioning coach. He certainly looks the part at least.

The fallout from the Salfino tweets continues with Toby Hyde and Howard Megdal weighing in.

Ted Berg has found a potential Dickey replacement in one Collin McHugh.

The Mets are interested in bringing back Mike Pelfrey after they non-tender him. This is not surprising, but may not be feasible depending on whether or not Pelf is looking for a major league deal.

And Faith and Fear announced an Ed Kranepool trivia contest for fun and prizes.

Yesterday at AA

SB Nation announced their Rookie of the Year award winners. And we posted all our staff award picks as well.

Steve Sypa took a closer look at newly-minted Dodger Hyun-Jin Ryu.

Michael Donato considered potential Chipper Jones' replacements.

Rob Castellano tried to solve the mystery of Greg Burke.

Eric officially announced the Amazin' Avenue Offseason Plan Contest. Not that it's prevented you crazies from already posting them.

Thomas Wachtel pointed you to some ad space for sale.

And Bock Mahan looked back at Tom Terrific's third Cy Young trophy.

Around MLB

It's award week for MLB, and the festivties kicked off with the announcements of the NL and AL Rookie of the Year awards. No surprises as Bryce Harper and Mike Trout took home the hardware. Jeff Sullivan would like to make a case for Jarrod Parker in the AL though, cause why not?

Also in unsurprising news, Jimmy Rollins is making stupid guarantees again. And just when my intense dislike for Rollins was starting to ebb.

The Pirates continue to only have good news leak out about their player development system.

The Indians have a tough decision to make on Sin-Soo Choo, but Scott Boras seems to know what's really going on here, you guys. Well, at least the Tribe has a good back-up plan.

And Rob Neyer proposes expanding the baseball lexicon.

And now, your Mets highlight of the day to get you through the long, cold winter:

Ike Davis goes boom, everyone jumps around.

And your non-baseball link of the day:

As bad as we SABR nerds can be sometimes, we have nothing on Sherlock nerds.
