Meet the Mets

Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News offered some thoughts on the finishing touches the Mets could make to their roster.

One of the many moves that the team should consider in the near future: a new long-term contract for Jacob deGrom.

Dominic Smith is a firm believer in 2020 first-round pick Pete Crow-Armstrong.

Around the National League East

Marcell Ozuna expressed excitement about being able to return to the Braves after signing a four-year deal with the club.

New Nationals starting pitcher Jon Lester talked about some of the changes he’s made over the course of his career and his outlook on joining the Washington rotation.

While Mets fans will argue that the addition of Francisco Lindor gives their team the best shortstop in the division, Trea Turner is arguably not too far behind him.

Around Major League Baseball

Mike Fiers is heading back to Oakland after signing a one-year, $3.5 million deal to return to the team.

Signing Fiers was the second move of the day for the Athletics, as they also made a trade with the Rangers which sent shortstop Elvis Andrus and catcher Aramis Garcia to Oakland and outfielder/designated hitter Khris Davis, catcher Jonah Heim, and pitcher Dane Acker to Texas.

While the top-tier free agents are now off the board, there are still some good players left on the market.

MLB.com ranked the top starting rotations in the league as things currently stand. The Mets found themselves pretty high on the list.

The Mets had one player listed on the rankings for the best current player at each position.
