Meet the Mets
Juan Lagares won his first career Gold Glove award in center field, an award that was an inevitability if you watched him play all season. Hopefully it's the first of many for him!
Awards season isn't over yet for the Mets, as Jacob deGrom was officially named one of three finalists for the NL Rookie of the Year award. That award will be announced on Monday.
Veteran slugger Mike Morse could be on the Mets' radar this winter. He'd be a great platoon mate with Lucas Duda and he has a great bat but his defense in left field and past injury issues are worrisome if he's going to be starting in left field. Morse is among five free agents the Mets could pursue this winter.
Mark Simon began a look back at the top 10 defenders in Mets history.
Around the Majors
Clubs are targeting former Mets outfielder Marlon Byrd on the trade market this winter. Meanwhile, the Phillies are also trying to trade first baseman Ryan Howard which...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Excuse me.
Now that the Cubs have hired Joe Maddon, what do they do next?
