Meet the Mets

Tonight’s revelation of the Rookie of the Year voting results are not a matter of if Pete Alonso will win the award, but by what margin.

It’s a wonderful day in Todd Frazier’s front yard, and you are a horrible flock of turkeys.

Darryl Strawberry, the only position player in Mets history to win the Rookie of the Year Award, had some words of advice for Alonso going forward.

Barely two years older than Jacob deGrom, former Met Jeremy Hefner will be interviewing for the pitching coach position.

The downside of Hefner’s interview is that the reign of the timeless Phil Regan appears to be at an end.

Like any good story should, the relationship between Pete Alonso and Brodie Van Wagenen can be traced back to a meal at a Mexican restaurant in the heart of Scottsdale.

Reports from over in Korea indicate that the Mets have their eye on lefty starting pitcher Kim Kwang-hyun.

Despite previous rumors, Terry Collins does not look to be the Mets next bench coach but instead will remain in his position as a special adviser.

Around the National League East

The Miami Marlins poached Hensley Meulens from the San Francisco Giants and Hadi Raad from the Yankees for a coaching position and to be the director of pro scouting, respectively.

Around Major League Baseball

Longtime baseball and Mets writer John Delcos passed away.

With little publicity, the General Manager Meetings will take place from Monday to Thursday this week in Phoenix.

Former Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington and Brewers assistant general manager Matt Arnold are among the finalists for the Pittsburgh Pirates general manager gig.

Across the nation, the San Francisco Giants’ general managerial hunt came to an end as Chicago Cubs executive Scott Harris was tabbed for the role.

This Date in Mets History

Damion Easley and Roberto Hernandez celebrate their birthdays today and absolutely nothing else of note ever happened on this date. Not even trading for Bobby Bonilla the second time around. Please don’t fact-check that.
