Meet the Mets

Baseball Prospectus released its Mets prospects rankings, with comments from our very own Jeff Paternostro.

Becoming a regular in the rotation has done nothing to lessen the spring training motivation of Steven Matz.

Meanwhile, Noah Syndergaard is shocked by how awesome he feels. Hopefully he'll be saying the same in September.

Brandon Nimmo is still weeks away from taking the field due to a left foot injury he suffered in the offseason.

When it came to landing Yoenis Cespedes, one of New York's top recruiters was Hansel Robles.

The talented outfielder drove another cute car to Tradition Field yesterday.

For some reason, the way Cespedes wears his hat during batting practice is becoming an issue.

Around the National League East

Talking Chop is hoping that Atlanta's Opening Day pitching rotation does not include Kyle Kendrick.

The Good Phight comes to terms with Domonic Brown playing for a new team.

Don Mattingly brings a different attitude to spring training than previous Marlins managers.

Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon is a really big Taylor Swift fan.

Around Major League Baseball

MLB introduced a rule change that aims to stop baserunners from aggressively wiping out middle infielders. Also, the controversial neighborhood play at second base will now be eligible for replay review.

Ken Rosenthal talked to Edinson Volquez about how the right-hander pitched during last year's World Series on the day his father passed way.

It looked like Dexter Fowler was about to sign with the Orioles, but instead he's headed back to the Cubs on a one-year deal.

The Double-A Frisco RoughRiders are installing a lazy river beyond the outfield wall.

Yasiel Puig is going to make Cespedes look like a chump when he starts flying to games in a helicopter.

Yesterday at Amazin' Avenue

Jordan Rabinowitz wrote about the lingering possibility of a Matt Harvey contract extension.
