Meet the Mets

The Mets reportedly had preliminary talks with the Pirates regarding Andrew McCutchen, but he might not be a perfect fit for the Mets.

White Sox reliever David Robertson would be a good fit, but the asking price might be too high.

ESPN has picked several Mets games to be its nationally broadcast Sunday night game.

Throughout their history, the Mets have been spoiled with good catchers on their roster, and they do still possess one currently.

Prospect Amed Rosario is on the cover of the latest edition of Baseball America.

Endy Chavez was up to his old tricks and robbed a home run in the Venezuelan League.

Some former Mets, and one notable Met killer, will be eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2018.

There is quite a number of star athletes playing in New York right now, and many Mets can be counted among them.

Around the NL East

The Braves made some changes to their medical staff for the 2017 season.

The newly-signed Brad Ziegler expects to be the Marlins’ setup man next season. Pitcher Mark Buehrle is number 69 on the Top 100 Marlins of All-Time list.

The Nationals’ general manager discussed the team’s two-year window.

Around the Majors

The Indians are aggressively pursuing first baseman Edwin Encarnacion.

The Pirates are interested in acquiring pitcher Jose Quintana from the White Sox.

Multi-year starting pitching contracts have been scarce this offseason perhaps because teams might already be looking ahead to 2017 and 2018.

Despite having a good season in 2016, teams could be wary about signing Mark Trumbo.

There are several reasons why the free agent market is developing slowly this year.

Yesterday at AA

Timothy Finnegan took a look at the hardest pitches Mets’ pitchers have thrown and it was visually spectacular.

After being a career minor leaguer, Ty Kelly finally got his chance in the majors last season.

This Date in Mets History

It is fitting Endy Chavez is back in the news. It was on this date in 2005 that the athletic outfielder signed with the Mets as a free agent.
