Meet the Mets

The Mets have apparently been discussing a potential multi-team trade that would see the Mets net J.T. Realmuto and some unknown players and send Noah Syndergaard to the Yankees.

Brodie Van Wagenen earlier told SNY that the team wouldn’t look to acquire Realmuto by creating another hole in their lineup.

The Mets have shown interest in free agent reliever Joe Kelly.

A catching upgrade still seems to be the Mets’ top priority though.

Peter Alonso was at the winter meetings to pick up the Joe Bauman Home Run Award, given to the top home run hitter in the minors.

Around the National League East

Don Mattingly isn’t worried about his job security despite heading into this season as a lame-duck manager with the Marlins.

The Phillies have no interest in trading Cesar Hernandez.

The Nationals are holding open tryouts for people to become one of the racing Presidents.

Around Major League Baseball

The Yankees are claiming that they plan to be financially disciplined this offseason.

The Yankees are also apparently considering signing Manny Machado.

Buster Posey may be limited in the early season as he returns from hip surgery.

The Mariners’ ballpark is no longer going to be called Safeco Field next season, after the team renewed its lease and signed a naming deal with T-Mobile.

MLB is attempting to get more women involved in the game as executives, scouts, umpires and coaches, and they held a special session just before the Winter Meetings to help advance their career opportunities.

People are still baffled about Harold Baines being voted into the Hall of Fame.

This Date in Mets History

Bernie Madoff was arrested on this date ten years ago, sparking a period of financial uncertainty for the Mets that has continued until this day.
