Meet the Mets

The free agency rumors continue to swirl around the team.

The bullpen needs to be addressed so reliever Bryan Shaw could potentially reunite with Mickey Callaway who was his pitching coach in Cleveland.

Todd Frazier is another free agent that could fill one of the needs the Mets have heading into next season.

The Mets could also look into signing a power bat that would give them depth both in the outfield and at first base.

The team most likely won’t be making any flashy free agent signings and instead will have to rely on the health of their existing players to get them back in contention.

Amed Rosario did not hit the ground running after he made his debut, but there is no need to worry about his performance just yet.

Jacob deGrom’s trademark flowing locks are sadly a thing of the past and the bobblehead giveaway next season will reflect that.

Around Major League Baseball

The baseball world continues to reel from Halladay’s death, but some unsettling information has come to light about the type of plane he was flying.

The people who knew Halladay remember him as both a fierce competitor and an outstanding teammate.

The Hall of Fame will probably wait to induct him into Cooperstown, but the wait won’t be long for him to receive the posthumous honor.
