Meet the Mets

Three out of the five teams in the division have been in the World Series in the last five seasons and the Mets can learn some things from their closest rivals.

With quite a few players set for free agency, the Mets might need to build a whole new bullpen for next season.

Edwin Díaz was a key piece of the bullpen and GM Billy Eppler would love to have him on the team long term but the decision is ultimately up to the electric closer.

Starling Marte could move back to center next year if the team loses Brandon Nimmo to free agency.

Both Díaz and Nimmo are both reportedly high up on Eppler’s list of players to sign for next season.
