Meet the Mets

A day after Buck Showalter threatened him to keep his marriage intact, Justin Verlander expressed excitement over starting his Mets career.

Going into 2023, the Mets have some of the best rotational depth in the majors and hopefully they never have to use any of it.

The Phillies signed veteran infielder and totally-out-of-the-baseline-runner Josh Harrison to a one-year deal for $2M.

Brian Snitker’s Braves have zero interest in the services of YouTuber Trevor Bauer.

Around Major League Baseball

Fittingly, Sarah Langs was awarded the Casey Stengel “You Could Look It Up” Award at the annual NY BBWAA dinner.

Two-time Gold Glove winner Roberto Perez came to an agreement with the San Francisco Giants after being aggressively pursued by the Red Sox.

Using his skills of analyzing the world’s worse people for our benefit once again, David Roth looked at the weird man at the helm of the Orioles, John Angelos.

If the Mets being good is too confusing for you, do not worry, there are plenty of bad teams that you can start following before they succeed.

Gleyber Torres will make $9.995M this season after settling with the Yankees and avoiding arbitration.
