Meet the Mets

Steve Cohen has spent the money to build himself a championship caliber ballclub, but it remains to be seen if they can live up to that title.

Before that team is considered complete, the Mets will at least be adding a fourth outfielder to the roster.

This Spring, the Mets anticipate their entire starting infield to be off playing in the World Baseball Classic.

Though they have a handful of introductory press conferences to hold, the first will be held on Wednesday, at the earliest.

At the moment, the Mets do not view themselves as being in need of a big slugger in the lineup.

Around the National League East

The Braves haven’t been overly active in Dansby Swanson’s market, but the Cubs and Dodgers are said to be among the teams interested in his services.

Known for their ample supply of Annoying Guys That Slug .400 That You Cannot Get Out, it only makes sense that Luis Arraez should at least be on the Marlins radar.

Around Major League Baseball

In free agency, Moneyball is out and SpendMoneyball is the new hotness.

The St. Louis Cardinals might be the least mysterious mystery team in history in their pursuit of Carlos Rodon.

Less mysteriously in Rodon’s market, the Giants and Yankees are expected to go head to head for the second time this offseason.

168 years after his birth, it is a good a time as any to look back on 60-game winner and active Tweeter Old Hoss Radbourn’s life and career.

This Date in Mets History
