Meet the Mets

The Mets signed pitcher Arquimedes Caminero and outfielder Rymer Liriano to minor league deals.

Indians’ manager Terry Francona still believes in Mickey Callaway and thinks the record isn’t always indicative a manager’s abilities.

The New York Jets are in search of a new coach, and they could follow the trend of the other teams in New York and hire a manager with no experience even though it remains to be seen whether or not that is a smart move.

With the new year upon us, the Mets have some resolutions they should keep if they want to be better in 2019 (paywall alert).

The Mets still have some glaring holes they need to fill but rotation depth should not go overlooked.

Around the National League East

Former Marlin Alfredo Amezaga retired from playing baseball and will be joining the Braves coaching staff in their minor league system.

The Phillies signed reliever David Robertson to a two-year deal worth $23 million.

Around Major League Baseball

The Mariners plan on being careful with their newest acquisition.

The White Sox have reportedly made an offer to Manny Machado.

With David Robertson heading to Philadelphia, the Yankees have other options to round out their bullpen (paywall alert).

Even taking away his MVP season, Bryce Harper is worth an insanely large contract, and there is a scenario where he could even outperform the contract he does receive.

The Cubs were on top of the world in 2016, but now they might not even be the best in their own division.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Reliever Bobby Wahl came in at number twenty-three on Amazin’ Avenue’s prospect list.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 2005, Darryl Strawberry fell off of the Hall of Fame ballot after only one year of eligibility.
