Meet the Mets

With the January 11 arbitration deadline approaching, the Mets still have not offered Jacob deGrom a contract extension.

After dealing with drug addiction in the past, Darryl Strawberry warned against athletes using marijuana as a pain reliever.

Wayne Randazzo will be joining Howie Rose in the radio booth next season, but it could change very quickly if it doesn’t work out.

Peter Alonso was one of the best at driving the ball at the minor league level last season.

Around the National League East

The Braves officially announced the couching staffs of their minor league teams.

The Marlins have reached a stalemate with the teams interested in J.T. Realmuto but they still refuse to lower the asking price.

The Phillies will meet with Bryce Harper sometime in the near future as they wait for Manny Machado to make a decision.

Despite turning down the Nationals’ original offer, a reunion with Harper is still not out of the question.

Around Major League Baseball

David Roth would like to remind everyone that there is plenty of money within baseball and every team should be able to sign Manny Machado and Bryce Harper they just choose not to.

Machado and Harper are obviously the big names on the free agent market, but there are some big names on the trading block as well.

Even with teams looking to make deals, the market is being held up by the two superstars.

Japanese star Yusei Kikuchi officially became a Seattle Mariner after signing a four-year deal that has a player option for a four-year extension.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Catcher Ali Sanchez came in at number twenty-four on Amazin’ Avenue’s prospect list.
