Meet the Mets

With the news of Alex Trebek’s passing coming out yesterday afternoon, it only feels right to share a pair of clues aimed at New York’s favorite trainwreck.

Q: With Astros exiles Alex Cora and AJ Hinch getting second chances, some believe that this former Mets manager deserves the same courtesy. A: Who is Carlos Beltran?

In news broken by Steve Cohen, an introductory press conference with the Mets’ new owner and Sandy Alderson, new team president, will take place at 12:30 on Tuesday.

Steve Cohen also revealed that the long-awaited Tom Seaver statue should make its grand debut at the start of the 2021 season.

The expectation is that Francisco Lindor will be traded at some point this offseason, and the Indians haven’t made it a secret that they’d like the Mets to get involved in the transaction.

Around the National League East

Yan Gomes and Kurt Suzuki have called the square behind home plate home for almost every game for two years, but that might change for the Nationals in 2021.

Talking Chop reviewed the 2020 season of some dude named Travis.

Fish Stripes continued their bonkers task of ranking every single player to put on a Marlins uniform over the past three decades.

Around Major League Baseball

Good news for those of you who like the universal designated hitter as Buster Olney reports that it appears to be here to stay. For those who don’t...sorry, I guess.

The Yankees committed the ultimate sin of betraying the Trenton Thunder, simultaneously betraying Rookie.

The Red Sox have been in contact with Jackie Bradley Jr. as suitors have started to make their pitches for the gold glover.

Not getting caught flat-footed, the Red Sox have also shown interest in Matt Shoemaker to sure up their rotation.

Suing the Houston Astros is apparently a thing that former general manager Jeff Lunhow is deciding to do with his time.
