Meet the Mets

Francisco Lindor won the National League Silver Slugger award at shortstop.

David Stearns says that he’s always had a good relationship with Scott Boras.

Keith Hernandez thinks the Mets have to retain Pete Alonso and compared his prodigious power to that of Harmon Killebrew.

Here’s how Stearns sees Brett Baty and Ronny Mauricio with the Mets’ third base job currently up for grabs.

Mauricio will play some third base in the Dominican Winter League.

Stearns also talked about what the Mets need when it comes to starting pitching.

If you missed it earlier this week, Greg Prince wrote a great piece, as per usual, about the Mets’ hiring of Carlos Mendoza.
