Meet the Mets

The Mets officially introduced the newest members of the organization David Robertson, Brooks Raley, and José Quintana .

Robertson saw joining the Mets as an opportunity to be with a winning ballclub in a competitive market.

Once upon a time Quintana was a prospect in the Mets’ organization and he wants to prove himself for the team where it all started for him.

GM Billy Eppler said the team will be opportunistic if players become available but for now the heavy lifting of building next year’s club appears to be over.

The NL East is going to be even more competitive this season with all the stars who have been added to the division.

The Mets might have lost out on Carlos Correa but with Steve Cohen in charge it is a refreshing change that the team remains active within the top tier of the free agent market.

Around the National League East

The Braves could use another outfielder to round out their potent offense.

The Nationals signed Matt Adams, Travis Blankenhorn, Tommy Romero, and Anthony Castro to minor league deals with an ivite to spring training.

Around Major League Baseball

Old friend Noah Syndergaard is headed back out west this time to the Dodgers.

Now that some of the top free agents are off the board, teams will now look to improve through trades which means a few players could still be on the move this offseason.

The Brewers acquired infielder Owen Miller from the Guardians in exchange for a player to be named later and some cash.

The Dodgers traded for J.P. Feyereisen who was designated for assignment by the Rays and is expected to miss almost the entire season with an injury.

Sarah Langs is battling ALS at just 29-years-old but her diagnosis hasn’t kept her from researching the game she loves.
