Meet the Mets

If you give the Mets a cookie, they will ask for a glass of 2% milk. Cookies and camaraderie became a staple of the 2019 Mets in this incredibly wholesome story.

Every player in camp has something different to prove this spring, even those who are guaranteed roster spots.

After undergoing further tests, Brandon Nimmo was given the all clear to return to baseball activities.

Robinson Cano has yet to enter a game since he has used his time in camp to work on strengthening his legs.

Pete Alonso is always looking for ways to get better and Cano is a good teammate to have to help him achieve that goal.

Michael Conforto sat down and chatted about a variety of topics including analytics and how he can continue to get better.

The Mets have multiple options at closer if Edwin Diaz isn’t able to bounce back from his 2019 season.

The team has checked-in on free agent catcher Russell Martin.

Mets fans have taken to Venmo to send Brodie Van Wagenen money in hopes of seeing changes with the team.

Around the National League East

Felix Hernandez got his second start of the spring with the Braves against the Cardinals.

The Phillies have been waiting for their prospects for a few years now and while many are now on the team they have a few still on the horizon.

The Nationals and Astros met again but this time under wildly different circumstances.

Around Major League Baseball

Rob Manfred has been heavily criticized for how he has handled the Astros’ cheating scandal, but this is not the first time he has mishandled an investigation into serious matters.

Even though baseball failed to intervene with the Astros despite it being wildly known that they were cheating, teams took it upon themselves to go to great lengths to counteract Houston’s actions.

Chris Sale will not be ready for Opening Day since the ace has been batting pneumonia.

After trying out a new pickoff move rule in Independent Ball, baseball will now try out the same rule in the minors this season.

It is the year 2020 and umpire Kerwin Danley was just named as the first African-American crew chief in baseball history.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Maggie Wiggin is expecting a big year out of Amed Rosario.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 1981, the Mets reacquired Dave Kingman from the Cubs in exchange for Steve Henderson, who of course was famously acquired for Tom Seaver in 1977.
