Los Angeles Dodgers v New York Mets

Meet the Mets

Free agent ace Yoshinobu Yamamoto had a second meeting with the Mets, this time enjoying a dinner at Steve Cohen’s house with David Stearns, Carlos Mendoza, and Jeremy Hefner all in attendance.

You can’t say for sure that Yamamoto will sign with the Mets, but you can never say that Steve Cohen didn’t pull out all of his available stops.

It appears that the Yamamoto sweepstakes will be a dogfight to the end, no matter who ends up winning his services.

Around the National League East

Battery Power reviewed the 2023 season of Francisco Lindor All Star Roster Spot Stealer Orlando Arcia.

Another starter to add to the Philadelphia rotation would be nice for them, but no matter what happens, they’re pretty set at the top.

It’s never a bad time to look back upon the days of Official Subway Pitchman Ryan Howard.

Around Major League Baseball

A day after dining at Steve Cohen’s, Yoshinobu Yamamoto attended a second meeting with the crosstown New York Yankees.

Just as easily as the Padres expensive, championship-hopeful team was built, it will be disassembled. At least below $200M.

The defending National League champion Diamondbacks are bringing back Lourdes Gurriel Jr. on a three-year $42M deal with an opt-out after year two and a player option after year three.

As we approach the end of the year, eight teams still have not committed a single dollar to a major league free agent.

The unofficial vibes merchant of Major League Baseball, Austin Hedges, is happy to be back in Cleveland, a place he considers home.

Not close to a deal at the moment, the Twins are listening to offers on Jorge Polanco and Max Kepler.

This Date in Mets History

The happiest of all possible birthdays to Mets Legends Adonis Medina and Grant Hartwig.
