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.

Is a Dickey Reunion Possible?

Let me say this right off the bat. I’m not writing this to sell people on the notion that R.A. Dickey has another Cy Young caliber season left in his right arm. I’m not writing this to try and convince people that Dickey the knuckleballer is a better rotation option than our five young aces, […]

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

However, over time that agreement started to become a big issue for players. Teams began to shy away from signing players who […]

The Dominance of Addison Reed

Last year on August 30th, Sandy Alderson made a trade to get former closer Addison Reed from the Arizona Diamondbacks for minor league pitchers Matt Koch and Miller Diaz.
