Meet the Mets

J.D. Davis had an excellent first season with the Mets, but how much playing time should the team give him in 2020?

To celebrate Black Friday, Metsblog took a look at some free agents who could potentially be bargains for a team like the Mets that don’t want to break the bank.

MLB scouts and executives provided their thoughts on the outlooks of several of the Mets’ top prospects, including 2019 first-round draft pick Brett Baty.

Around the National League East

The Nationals are still holding out hope that they’ll be able to re-sign Stephen Strasburg. But how will this upcoming decade go for him in comparison to this past one?

The Phillies have an important offseason ahead of them, and it’s been made even more important by the moves that the Braves and Nationals have already made.

Former Marlins and Phillies first baseman Justin Bour has reached an agreement with the Hanshin Tigers in Japan.

Around Major League Baseball

As more information about the use of electronic sign stealing comes out, some MLB pitchers are furious that they’ve been operating at a disadvantage without even knowing about it (paywall alert).

MLB.com took a look at thirty prospects who could potentially be traded away this offseason. They dug into the Mets’ limited starting pitching depth for their pick for the Amazins.

The league’s plan to eliminate dozens of minor league teams will obviously hurt the teams being eliminated, but it will also lower the value of the surviving teams.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

All of the Amazin’ Avenue writers were too busy recovering from their Thanksgiving feasts and/or hunting for Black Friday deals to write anything yesterday.

This Date in Mets History

David Wright signed the largest contract in team history on this date in 2012, ensuring that the beloved captain would be one of the few lifelong Mets in franchise history.
