Meet the Mets

According to Ken Rosenthal, the Mets may look to improve their bullpen this offseason by entering the Josh Hader sweepstakes.

Just as he has been for most of the past five years, Jacob deGrom is projected to be the Mets’ best player in 2020.

Around the National League East

The only Wilmer in major league history to never play for the Mets, Wilmer Difo, avoided arbitration with the Washington Nationals.

As the arbitration deadline comes and goes tonight, the PhilliesCesar Hernandez and Maikel Franco could be two of the names that find themselves needing new teams.

Around Major League Baseball

Being a month into the period of free agency, it’s safe to say that we, as baseball fans, have learned a few things.

The aforementioned arbitration deadline is at 8:00 tonight and depending on what happens, the free agency pool could say hello to a few dozen new swimmers.

Up in Boston, Red Sox fans were given a late bit of news to be thankful for as Dr. James Andrews gave staff ace Chris Sale the green light to begin throwing.

The Rangersnext priority this offseason has to be their hole at third base, and apparently they’ve been eyeing Miguel Andujar to fill that need.

Just because he’s 46-years-old and retired doesn’t mean Ichiro can’t still rack up three hits and throw a 16-strikeout shutout, even if it was an exhibition game against a group of Japanese teachers.

The rumor in the bay area is that the Athletics are Treinen to trade reliever Blake Treinen.

This Date in Mets History

The Mets celebrated the third of the month a day early on this date in 1968, 1991, and 1998 by signing third basemen Wayne Garret, Bobby Bonilla, and Robin Ventura.
