Meet The Mets

The Port St. Lucie City Council approved a 55 million dollar expansion to First Data Field, the spring training home of the Mets. The work should begin at the end of the spring training in 2018 and be mostly complete before players report in 2019.

The accolades for new manager Mickey Callaway continue to roll in. Joel Sherman thinks that the Mets have hired their own version of the modern MLB manager.

With former Met Justin Turner seemingly posturing himself for success in the World Series, Sandy Alderson seemed to clear the air about the third baseman’s non-tender from the team in 2013.

In a move that might have made a unilateral rooting interest decision for many Mets fans, the Dodgers have left Curtis Granderson off their World Series roster. Ever classy, Granderson was disappointed but supportive of the decision.
