Meet the Mets

Baseball’s winter meetings have started, and the Mets still have some work to do.

Sandy Alderson would rather keep Curtis Granderson, considering what he has meant to the organization, but he remains open to trading one of his outfielders including Michael Conforto.

It is unlikely the Mets go after any of the top closers on the market, and they could improve the bullpen from within.

Major League Baseball will be holding an auction to honor the memory of Shannon Forde.

Around the NL East

The Braves have their eye on Tampa ace Chris Archer, but they will not trade for Chris Sale if Dansby Swanson is the asking price. John Schuerholz, the architect of the Mets’ arch-rival in the 90s, was elected into the Hall of Fame.

The Marlins head into the winter meetings seeking starting pitching and a big name closer. Former-Met Paul Lo Duca is 79th in the top 100 Marlins of All-Time.

The Nationals are rumored to have interest in starter Chris Sale along with outfielder Andrew McCutchen.

Around the Majors

The Yankees signed outfielder Matt Holliday to a one-year deal.

Third baseman Yangervis Solarte is being shopped by the Padres.

Former commissioner Bud Selig was voted into the Hall of Fame along with Schuerholz.

There are many players to keep an eye on as the winter meetings commence.

The Rockies are looking at another slugger to add to their already powerful lineup.
