Meet the Mets
On Wednesday, we'll learn whether or not Mike Piazza finally makes the Hall of Fame. David Lennon of Newsday wrote about his ballot, which includes Piazza and is excellent otherwise, as well. At the time of this writing, Piazza has 87.2 percent of the vote among 141 public ballots, per the @NotMrTibbs tracker.
Greg Price points out that this is the shortest offseason in Mets history, as we haven't yet reached the Baseball Equinox, and makes some good points about personal expectations and projections for any baseball season.
John Harper suggests a WFAN trade for New York's two teams: Zack Wheeler, Rafael Montero, and Alejandro De Aza for Andrew Miller and Brett Gardner.
Around the National League East
Federal Baseball considers the possibilities in the Nationals' bullpen, as both Jonathan Papelbon and Drew Storen could either be traded or kept around to close for the team. Also, are the Nationals going to add any starting pitchers, or will they stick with their current five?
Around Major League Baseball
Mike Petriello looks at which active players might someday make the Hall of Fame. It's a pretty good overview of the situation, but I wouldn't count David Wright out just yet.
