Latest Mets News

Jon Morosi of says the Mets are interested in Mike Moustakas and Todd Frazier if their prices drop. My guess, they are not able to get a second baseman so now they want to land a third baseman. Morosi also adds the Mets have had contact with catcher Jonathan Lucroy. As a Trevin Plawr’naud gang leader, I would be against this.

Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic said the Mets have discussed Andrew McCutchen with the Pirates. He also told #MetsTwitter that now is not the time to get upset about the team’s lack of spending.

Jenrry Mejia settled on a one-year deal for $1.729 million with the Mets according to Jon Heyman. He will not get any of this money, however, as he is banned from MLB for life after three failed PED suspensions.
