Meet the Mets

Rising Apple warns that entering the 2015 season with Wilmer Flores as the starting shortstop leaves our Mets in a vulnerable position.

Mets 360 says that Noah Syndergaard will make himself a household name in 2015, no matter whether he pitches out of the rotation or the bullpen.

Faith and Fear in Flushing says goodbye to 2014.

This date in Mets history: I accidentally posted the December 29 moment yesterday, so here's what happened on December 28: Benny Agbayani was born. Happy Birthday, Benny!

Around the National League East

We know that Dan Uggla was dreadful in 2014, but now we are learning that he may have been playing through a concussion last season.

Around the Majors

Sports on Earth lists five teams (you know, besides the Mets) that have unfinished business heading into the 2015 portion of the offseason.

Christina Kahrl brings us 10 pitchers who are good bets to break out in 2015. One of them is Zack Wheeler.

With Brandon Moss in tow, the Indians are thinking of moving Nick Swisher. He's due a total of $30 million over the next two seasons, so Cleveland shouldn't expect much of a return unless it eats some salary.

Cardinals skipper Mike Matheny is leaning towards batting new acquisition Jason Heyward second in the St. Louis batting order.

Dodgers lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu is more than just a good pitcher; he's an expert at jump rope as well.

Yesterday at Amazin' Avenue

Andrew Felper helped us see how Curtis Granderson can bounce back from his Jekyll-and-Hyde 2014 campaign.
