Meet the Mets

A slow offseason started to heat up for the Mets after signing both righty Luis Severino and infielder Joey Wendle.

The two newest signings are expected to be depth pieces and the team should still be busy as the Winter Meetings approach.

David Stearns was used to working with smaller budgets in Milwaukee so he can balance both being frugal and spending big in his new role with the Mets.

The Mets are close to signing Vladi Guerrero, the son of Vladimir Guerrero, who could become an interesting prospect in the organization.
