Meet the Mets

Last night, the Mets were fashionably late and their official 60-man roster for the 2020 season was released to the public.

Earlier in the day, the Mets officially placed Noah Syndergaard on the 45-day IL as he recovers from Tommy John Surgery.

As the Hall of Fame reopens its doors to fans, there is no shortage of amazin’ Mets artifacts on display in the annals.

Around the National League East

When he does eventually work with his players this season, the BravesRon Washington will be fully gloved and masked.

Drew Storen and Matt Szczur were casualties of the Phillies’ roster cuts as the 60-man deadline approached.

Around Major League Baseball

After a tweet from their general manager caused some problems among the players, 18 softballers, including 11 future Olympians, walked out.

Despite some (incorrect) people saying that COVID-19 shouldn’t do much harm to the young and agile players in professional sports, the truth is that we really don’t know what the long-term prognosis is.

Some changes for the bizarre 2020 season may have been necessary, but the new extra inning rule was not one of them.

As some coaches opt for gloves and masks, Bob McClure and Bill Evers of the Twins won’t even participate in the 2020 season.

The Yankees had a busy day of transactions as they put Luis Severino on the injured list, signed 2015 Rookie of the Year runner-up Matt Duffy, and released Dan Otero before immediately re-signing him.

A trio of minor leaguers were suspended for testing positive for PEDs while one Twins outfielder tested positive for a drug of abuse.

Players for the Toronto Blue Jays have been told to travel to their team home in Toronto, Canada.

Summer camp draws near, but there are still salary-related negotiations that must take place before that point comes.

We love our wacky baseball uniforms, don’t we folks? We love some peculiar uniforms and we are doing it very strongly and powerfully.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 1969, Tom Seaver became the Mets’ all time wins leader, a title that he holds to this day.
