Meet the Mets

Dellin Betances was officially introduced at Citi Field and the GM thinks the signing will help transform the bullpen.

Brodie Van Wagenen insisted that the financials of Betances’s contract had nothing to do with the money they saved from Yoenis Cespedes.

The reliever missed almost all of last season with injuries but he insists he is healthy and will be ready to go come spring.

Both Robinson Cano and Carlos Beltran were instrumental in getting Betances to become a Met.

Around the National League East

The Braves are reportedly one of the teams that have offered Josh Donaldson a four-year deal.

Andruw Jones is seeing an increase in votes for the Hall of Fame this year.

Fish Stripes came up with some bold predictions for the Marlins this year.

The Phillies have several players who are due for arbitration raises and The Good Phight took a guess at what they could be set to earn next season.

The Nationals have reportedly signed Will Harris to a three-year deal worth $24 million. Victor Robles’s name has come up in trade rumors but Washington would rather not part with the youngster.

Around Major League Baseball

Yankees’ pitcher Domingo German received a suspension of 81 games after he was allegedly involved in a domestic violence incident last season.

The White Sox extended prospect Luis Robert for six years and $50 million.

The Red Sox signed Kevin Plawecki to be their backup catcher.

Teams should probably stop trying to trade their popular, homegrown superstars.

What will baseball look like at the end of this decade?
