Meet the Mets
The New York Baseball Writers’ Association of America held their annual awards dinner to honor the best players in the game. Noah Syndergaard could not attend the ceremony, so Terry Collins accepted the award for “NY Player of the Year” on his behalf.
With free agent catcher Matt Wieters still unsigned, the Mets should look at him as an option for next season.
There are still many available relievers on the market that could help bolster the Mets’ bullpen.
Jeurys Familia’s likely suspension could have an impact beyond the 2017 season.
Around the NL East
Around the Majors
The Royals’ fiery flame-thrower Yordano Ventura was killed in a car accident in the Dominican Republic early Sunday morning. Tragically, former Cleveland infielder Andy Marte was killed in a separate accident the same day.
Andy Marte was a former top prospect who bounced around the majors before finding success in South Korea.
Several teams are interested in acquiring Matt Wieters.
