Meet The Mets

Free agency is officially underway. Unfortunately for Sandy Alderson, budget restrictions might affect what he is able to do this winter.

Curtis Granderson has no plans to retire and intends to play in 2018.

The Mets might be prioritizing defense this offseason.

Around the National League East

Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg were named finalists for the 2017 Cy Young Award.

Wei-Yin Chen opted into his contract and will stay with the Miami Marlins.

Around Major League Baseball

Former Blue Jays and Phillies starting pitcher Roy Halladay died in a plane crash yesterday. He was 40 years old. Mets fans are of course most familiar with Halladay during his tenure with the Phillies between 2010-2013. The heart of a then fearsome Philadelphia rotation, Halladay had a 3.25 ERA and had a 55-29 record. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family in this time.

Now that two-way Japanese phenom Shohei Otani has signed with the CAA agency, it’s looking more and more likely that he will play Major League baseball in 2018.

The 2017 Gold Glove Award winners were announced.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Chris McShane previewed the starting pitchers available in free agency.

Brian Salvatore reviewed Juan Lagares’ season.
