Meet the Mets
George Springer is now a Blue Jay because the Mets did not want to match the massive deal Toronto was offering.
Now that the Mets have lost out on Springer where can they turn to finish off their 2021 roster?
While centerfield and the bullpen are the main areas of concern there are a couple of areas they can round out as well including the rotation and third base.

The Braves could use some help in the outfield but their options are dwindling with Springer heading to Toronto.
Marlins GM Kim Ng was part of the inauguration ceremonies in a pre-taped segment where she read an excerpt from Ronald Reagan’s inaugural address.

This Date in Mets History
