The Window to Re-Sign Cespedes is Closing

Back in the 1998 offseason, neither the Mets nor Mike Piazza were messing around. Before the end of the World Series, which is the time players could file for free agency, the Mets made the 30 year old Piazza the highest paid player in the sport by giving him a seven year, $91 million contract. […]

Harper: Mets Need Kenley Jansen To Keep Up With Cubs

John Harper of the Daily News makes his case for the Mets signing free-agent closer Kenley Jansen this offseason. “If the Mets want to take a huge step toward re-claiming that supremacy next year and beyond, they should make a big splash this off-season by signing Kenley Jansen,” writes Harper who argues that adding Jansen will put […]

MLB Exec Thinks Mets Could Deal Jay Bruce

There’s absolutely no question that the New York Mets will exercise the $13 million dollar option on outfielder Jay Bruce as soon as the World Series comes to an end. That much is clear. What isn’t so clear is what happens next. Clearly, Bruce had a rough go of it in New York, a city […]

Mets Should Re-Sign Fernando Salas

With Addison Reed and Jeurys Familia in the fold, the Mets have their eighth and ninth innings guys set up for next season. In 2016, that tandem was the best in baseball. However, it was also the most taxed. The duo pitched more innings than any other reliever combination in the major leagues. The main […]

Expect Few Changes Offensively for the Mets in 2017

One of the questions I am asked most often is what I think the Mets will do this offseason, and quite frankly I don’t really see the Mets doing too much. Perhaps the most significant decision facing the Mets is trying to re-sign Yoenis Cespedes – and I’m hearing the front office will be focusing […]

This Date In Mets History: Robin Ventura’s Grand Slam Single

Is a Dickey Reunion Possible?

Should Mets Extend Neil Walker A $17.2 Million Qualifying Offer?

Before the 2015 offseason, the qualifying offer system was seen as a gentleman’s agreement. Teams would offer it, and players would agree to decline it and seek a multi-year contract in free agency. However, over time that agreement started to become a big issue for players. Teams began to shy away from signing players who […]
