Meet the Mets
Brandon Nimmo and his big heart were back in action on Friday after having to take some time off to get some additional cardiac testing.
The Mets have said that Stroman is essentially Zack Wheeler’s replacement this season, so it will be interesting now that the latter is with their division rivals to see if the team made the right choice.
Brodie Van Wagenen discussed the thinking that led the Mets to hire both Carlos Beltran and Luis Rojas as their managers this offseason, how a healthy Yoenis Cespedes could impact the 2020 team, and where the pitching staff stands heading into the season.
Robinson Cano will not push his body too hard as he aims to continue playing baseball deep into his late thirties.
Luis Rojas has all the potential to be a great manager for the Mets.
Ron Darling opened up about his recent (and victorious!) battle with cancer.
Dwight Gooden explained how he dealt with sign-stealing during his playing days and offered his thoughts on the current controversies surrounding the issue.
Around the National League East
Joe Girardi announced that Andrew McCutchen will open the 2020 season on the injured list as he continues his recovery from a torn ACL in his left knee.
Stephen Strasburg also made his debut yesterday, and he saw positives and negatives in his performance.
Around Major League Baseball
Giancarlo Stanton is feeling demoralized after yet another injury.
The league removed marijuana from its banned substance list, but that doesn’t mean they won’t penalize players for blazing up.
Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue
