Meet the Mets

The Blue Jays have contacted the Mets and are once again interested in acquiring Jay Bruce.

The Mets are reportedly in the market for a reliever, and there are several options they can target.

The market could play a little differently for Yoenis Cespedes this offseason compared with last year.

By letting Bartolo Colon sign elsewhere, the Mets have saved some money to spend elsewhere.

Neil Walker must make a decision on the qualifying offer the Mets extended to him.

Some prospects are faring better than others in the Arizona Fall League, but only one of those players appears on Baseball Prospectus’s list of the Mets’ top ten prospects heading into 2017.

LaTroy Hawkins and Cliff Floyd discuss the merits of playing baseball in the City that Never Sleeps.

Around the NL East

The Braves signed reliever Jordan Walden to a minor-league deal.

The Marlins will construct a permanent memorial to honor Jose Fernandez’s legacy.

The Phillies are rebuilding so nobody on their roster is safe from a trade.

Nationals GM Mike Rizzo is keeping his eye on the market for closers, and he also has the luxury of starting pitching depth should he want to make a trade to plug holes elsewhere.

Around the Majors

Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado announced he will play for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic.

The players up for all the major awards put up some impressive stats in 2016.

Pitcher Ivan Nova reportedly has multiple offers from different teams.

The Red Sox might not be actively pursuing Edwin Encarnacion.

In a thin free agent market, there are some bargains to be found.
