Meet the Mets
At a press conference held at Citi Field on Tuesday morning, Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz were introduced as the newest members of the Mets.
Jeff Wilpon wanted a big splash and newly hired GM Brodie Van Wagenen did just that in his first move while in charge of the Mets.
David Lennon writes Van Wagenen backed up his words with actions and now it’s time for ownership to pony up the cash to fill the remaining holes on the roster.
Noah Syndergaard does not appear to be going anywhere as Van Wagenen said it would be “very special circumstances” for the team to trade Syndergaard.
The New York Post is reporting the Mets are close to finalizing their new radio team with Wayne Randazzo appearing to be the front-runner to join Howie Rose in the booth.
Also on Tuesday, Jeff Wilpon said the Mets are working with their insurance company about a potential insurance settlement with David Wright’s contract.
