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

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.
