New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

Meet the Mets

With the MLB Draft tonight, Tim Healey writes that the Mets roster shows they’ve done well in the past drafting.

Josh Harris and David Blitzer are interested in buying the Mets, but the pair already has a history of owning a team.

Tim Britton looks at the best Mets’ selection in each round of the MLB Draft.

The Mets (and Phillies) are interested in a prospect from Toms River, and it isn’t a clone of Todd Frazier. Mike Puma writes the Mets could select a top-end pitcher with their first round pick.

Around the National League East

Talking Chop reviewed Alex Anthopoulos’ past drafts with the Braves.

In 2000, the Phillies were lucky Chase Utley was still available in the first round.

The Marlins will have many different options tonight when picking with the third overall pick.

Around Major League Baseball

The biggest news of the day came in the form of the news that the MLBPA will propose an 89 game season with expanded playoffs.

This proposal from the union would have the regular season end in the second month of October. And even though the league will reject this proposal, Jeff Passan reports it’ll bring the two sides closer to a set number of regular season games.

Meanwhile, Jared Diamond reported that an individual from the management side said “They’re not even trying” when speaking about the player’s union.

The Players Association informed agent Scott Boras he can not go forward with his plan to pay his released minor league clients.

Little Leaguers have one ask, and it is to have an MLB season.

Baseball could’ve been the first sport back, but instead they’re blowing it by arguing over how to divide billions of dollars writes Jared Diamond.

Bill DeWitt Jr., owner of the Cardinals, said the baseball industry “isn’t that profitable”.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Michael Drago wrote about his trip to Shea Stadium to watch the 2006 Mets in a magical game.

Steve Sypa previewed tonight’s draft as well as looked back at the Mets 2017 draft.
