Meet the Mets

Like so many of us, Steve Cohen is ready for the end of this year and the return of Mets baseball.

It’s hard to believe that it happened in this current calendar year, but the firing of Carlos Beltran was one of the more memorable New York sports stories of 2020.

Around the National League East

Now that the Nationals have filled their hole at first base with their recent trade for Josh Bell, the team can focus on trying to add another solid bat in free agency.

The late Dick Allen’s surprise return to the Phillies in 1975 helped to cement his long-term legacy with the team.

Around Major League Baseball

Rangers fans received a Christmas gift yesterday, as the team signed Japanese right-handed pitcher Kohei Arihara to a two-year deal.

Former Met Adeiny Hechavarria is heading to the Nippon Baseball League, as he signed a one-year deal with the Chiba Lotte Marines.

The Athletic contemplated some of the potential landing spots which could make sense for free agent outfielder Marcell Ozuna. listed some of the prospect “gifts” that each MLB team has received over the years, with Noah Syndergaard coming in as the top example from the Mets.

One of the many ways in which 2020 has been a rough year for baseball: six Hall of Fame players have tragically passed away this year, including Mets legend Tom Seaver.

The Amazin’ Avenue staff provided their recommendations for best Christmas movies and television specials.
