Meet the Mets

Thinking back to his days in Boston, Gary DiSarcina sees a lot of Xander Bogaerts in Amed Rosario.

After a lackluster second start, Zack Wheeler has no worries about his performance this early in the spring.

When it comes to better performance from Dominic Smith, a good night’s sleep may just be the key to the kingdom.

With his first at bat under his belt, Travis d’Arnaud’s comeback from Tommy John Surgery has officially come to the field.

Around the National League East

While some owners look more at their ledgers than the product on the field, Phillies owner John Middleton has no qualms about spending money.

Bryce Harper’s Phillies jerseys are flying off the shelves as Fanatics reported that they sold more of them in 24 hours than any other jersey in any other sport ever.

Harper’s official debut as a Phillie will come next Saturday in the DH role.

While they are interested in acquiring his services, the Nationals probably will not go over the luxury tax threshold to sign Craig Kimbrel.

The Phillies made another move this weekend by signing Miguel Tejada Jr. to a deal.

Over at the Good Phight, they celebrated the Phillies’ new and improved roster for the 2019 season.

Working towards improving their effectiveness on the basepaths, the Marlins have turned to technology to give them an advantage.

Around Major League Baseball

Former Met Bobby Wahl tore his ACL and will probably miss the entire regular season.

Yu Darvish may not be in the best shape of his life, but his pitches certainly are.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. revealed his glove-wearing habits to the media.

On the other hand, Pirates reliever Keone Kela has decided that he isn’t speaking to the media this season.
