Meet the Mets
Ken Davidoff profiled five young position player prospects who could help the Mets over the next year or so.
It looks like Mike Piazza has a good shot to be enshrined in Cooperstown, finally!
There's no Yoenis Cespedes but at Beyond the Box Score, Nick Stellini says the Mets are still having a good offseason.
Curtis Granderson wished Mets fans a Happy New Year in Lego form, along with Lucas Duda.
Around the NL East
Jeffrey Loria has no interest in selling the Marlins, which is great news for both the Mets and their owners since Loria is far worse.
It looks like the Braves may have sold at the right time on both Alex Wood and Jose Peraza.
Former Phillies lefty Cliff Lee is on the Marlins' wishlist.
The Nationals could be in on many of the big free agents still available, including Yoenis Cespedes. Sounds like a longshot but that would be heartbreaking.
Around the Majors
Kenta Maeda's deal with the Dodgers is reportedly worth $24 million over 8 years with a lot of incentives.
The White Sox have interest in Alex Gordon and Yoenis Cespedes but aren't interested in going over 3 years for either.
