Meet the Mets

John Sickels released his 2015 Top 20 Prospects list and it is a pretty deep one.

Jung-Ho Kang will not be a Met, as Sandy Alderson says the Mets will not bid on the shortstop.

John Mayberry is a Met, thanks to his ability to beat up on lefties and play a bench role. Mayberry has bonuses in his contract.

Speaking of lefties, the bullpen role of second lefty will likely go to a spring competition among minor league contracts.

Jenrry Mejia was Santa Claus at the Mets holiday party. The 2014 closer is willing to cede his role to Bobby Parnell when the veteran returns.
