Meet the Mets

The Mets’ newest acquisition, Edwin Diaz, is pitching with bone spurs but it hasn’t effected his performance on the field.

With this trade the team is signaling that they are going for it and that more moves are likely to follow.

This is the type of aggressive move that should be praised as long as they follow it up with other additions to the roster.

Even after acquiring both Diaz and Robinson Cano, the Mets still have the financial flexibility to add more players to the team.

Cano was spotted in New York and he is happy to be back in the city he once played for.

This was a blockbuster trade that could have ripple effects around the league.

Around the National League East

Fish Stripes thinks the Mets could be a good trade partner for the Marlins when it comes to J.T. Realmuto.

The Phillies are reportedly about to acquire Jean Segura from the Mariners.

If the Nationals do not acquire a second baseman this offseason, they could move prospect Carter Kieboom to the position. Washington still does not know where Bryce Harper will ultimately end up this offseason.

Around Major League Baseball

Free agent outfielder A.J. Pollock is reportedly seeking a five-year deal worth $80 million.

Chip Hale is on the short list of candidates interviewing for the vacant managerial position in Baltimore.

GM Brian Cashman said the Yankees are not looking to trade catcher Gary Sanchez.

Patrick Corbin is a coveted free agent on the market and there are reportedly mystery teams interested in signing him.

There are plenty of other starters on the market but all of them come with a certain amount of risk.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Trading for Diaz and Cano was a good first step but the Mets cannot afford to stop there.

Chris McShane is trying to find the Mets some viable relievers.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 1974, the Mets traded Tug McGraw to the Phillies in exchange for Mac Scarce, John Stearns, and Del Unser.
