Meet the Mets

The Winter Classic is coming to Citi Field, and the first pictures of the transformation are here.

Meanwhile, Jason Kipnis appears increasingly out of reach as a trade target for the Mets.

Around the National League East

As expected, the Braves have released Adrian Gonzalez.

Christian Yelich and J.T. Realmuto are unsurprisingly not happy with the direction of the Marlins, and Realmuto is actively requesting to be traded.

Stephen Strasburg has indicated he may skip future All-Star Games as he blame’s last year’s contest for his elbow issues.

Around Major League Baseball

The Red Sox have re-signed Mitch Moreland to a two-year deal.

Cole Hamels and his wife donated a 32,000 square foot mansion and 100 acres of land in Missouri to Camp Barnabas, a charity for special needs children.

Zack Cozart’s donkey has remained behind in Cincinatti, but Cozart is working on changing that.

The Mariners released Andrew Albers so he could sign with the Orix Buffaloes in Japan.
