Meet the Mets

With baseball's GM meetings getting underway tonight in Boca Raton, Florida, Sandy Alderson's primary objectives will be finding pieces to fill holes in the lineup and bullpen.

If Yoenis Cespedes leaves for greener pastures, there are a number of center field options that New York can look to for a replacement.

Meanwhile, Baltimore reliever (and former Met) Darren O'Day could be at the top of the shopping list for New York and other teams in search of bullpen help.

Mets bench coach Bob Geren interviewed for the open manager position in Los Angeles, but the hiring process is still in its early stages.

The Post hopes that this year's Alderson signings turn out more like Curtis Granderson and less like Michael Cuddyer.
