Meet the Mets

Several prospects got an invite to spring training and so did Tim Tebow.

The Mets will have some decisions to make when it comes to their arbitration eligible players.

Having a run-in with a boar is a very Metsy thing to have happen, but Yoenis Cespedes is not the first one in baseball to have an encounter with the beast.

Wayne Randazzo and Howie Rose will be back for another season of Mets baseball on the radio which includes several spring training games as well.

Around the National League East

The Marlins designated Austin Dean for assignment in order to make room for Francisco Cervelli.

Eric Thames is excited to be joining the defending World Series Champions next season. Michael A. Taylor and the Nationals agreed to a $3.325 million deal to avoid arbitration.

Around Major League Baseball

The Cardinals acquired prospect Matt Liberatore from the Rays in exchange for Jose Martinez, Randy Arozarena, and a compensation pick.

A former Yankees prospect attempted to sue Derek Jeter for $34 million after he blamed the shortstop for ruining his career.

The Rockies for some reason are still looking to move Nolan Arenado and the Rangers and Cardinals are interested in the star third baseman.

With the market shifting, the cost of a win in free agency may no longer be linear.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Number 16 on Steve Sypa’s 2020 prospect list is Jaylen Palmer.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 2006, the Mets signed Mike Pelfrey to a four-year deal worth $5.25 million before he ever threw a pitch in the majors.
