Meet the Mets

It’s not even spring yet, but Jeurys Familia is already in the best shape of his life as he is determined to put last season behind him.

With both Jed Lowrie and Yoenis Cespedes still on the roster, the Mets could be limited in how flexible the roster could be.

Around the National League East

How do the Braves stack up compared with an improved National League East?

The Mariners signed Wei-Yin Chen to a minor league contract which could have some financial implications for the Marlins.

Rhys Hoskins is making quite a few adjustments heading into the 2020 season and the Phillies are hoping it will be a risk worth taking.

Around Major League Baseball

The Red Sox and Dodgers are still actively discussing a potential deal that would bring Mookie Betts to Los Angeles.

The Reds signed reliever Pedro Strop to a one-year deal worth $1.825 million.

Dusty Baker was officially introduced as the new Houston skipper and he vowed that the cheating that happened in the past would not happen again as long as he is in charge.

The Cubs and Rockies briefly discussed a deal that would swap their two star third basemen.

Patrick Mahomes will be playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday, but had he chosen differently, he also had the talent to follow in his father’s footsteps to the Major Leagues.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Steve Sypa reached the end of his prospect countdown and Ronny Mauricio came in at number one.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 1962, the beloved Ralph Kiner joined Bob Murphy and Lindsay Nelson to round out the Mets’ broadcast booth.
