Meet the Mets

Recent comments by Jacob deGrom make it seem like he could be the first of New York's young starters to sign a contract extension.

Even after all the promotions and trades over the past year, the Mets still landed four prospects on Keith Law's Top 100 list.

One player on that list, Steven Matz, says he is focused on staying healthy in 2016.

SNY released its spring training broadcast schedule, which consists of all 14 of the Mets' home games in Port St. Lucie.

Around the National League East

The Braves are moving to a new stadium in 2017, but they might not be taking a Hank Aaron statue with them.

Thanks in part to the trades they made over the past year, the Phillies have five prospects in Law's Top 100. Shortstop J.P. Crawford is considered one of the best in baseball at the No. 4 spot.

Speaking of sexy shortstop prospects, Law is among those who think Trea Turner should start on Opening Day for the Nationals.

Around Major League Baseball

Despite owning one of the worst farm systems in the big leagues and a major league roster with some serious shortcomings, the Angels are never going to trade Mike Trout.

Grant Brisbee says that the NL East will feature baseball's least exciting division race in 2016. Hopefully that's because the Mets are running away with it.

Mariano Rivera will get a plaque in Yankee Stadium's Monument Park this summer.

The Pirates inked former Mets reliever Eric O'Flaherty to a minor league deal.

Did legendary manager Tony La Russa hurt the Hall of Fame chances of Jim Edmonds?
