Report: New York Mets Held Meeting With Jacob deGrom's Agent Yesterday

By: Mike Phillips | December 12, 2018 The New York Mets are hard at work trying to improve their team at the Winter Meetings, but they are also weighing how to take care of their own stars. The biggest star on the Mets right now is ace Jacob deGrom, who won the National League Cy Young Award by compiling a 1.70 ERA on a dreadful team. deGrom is under team control for only two more years before reaching free agency, so the Mets should be looking to explore a contract extension with their ace. The first step of that...

Brodie Van Wagenen's Willingness To Talk With New York Yankees Is An Interesting Development

By: Mike Phillips | December 11, 2018 The New York Mets and New York Yankees don’t complete trades very often. The last trade between the teams involving two big league players came back in 2004, and it was just a swap involving lefty relievers Mike Stanton and Felix Heredia. The teams have talked trade in recent years, particularly at the 2017 trade deadline, when the Mets had rental pieces that would have fit the Yankees’ needs like Jay Bruce, Neil Walker, and Lucas Duda. Those deals fell apart at the end for various reasons, but there has been a...

By: Mike Phillips | December 11, 2018 New York Mets’ General Manager Brodie Van Wagenen is a creative guy, and that creativity is threatening to break the internet. Reports emerged late on Monday night that the Mets were engaged in multiple three team trade scenarios to try and acquire catcher J.T. Realmuto from the Miami Marlins, but one particular option raised alarm bells with the team’s fan base. Check out this rumor, courtesy of the New York Post’s Mike Puma. While Mets’ fans weren’t thrilled about including Michael Conforto, Brandon Nimmo, or Amed Rosario in a trade for Realmuto...

Report: New York Mets Would Need To Be “Blown Away” To Trade Noah Syndergaard

By: Mike Phillips | December 10, 2018 The Winter Meetings are underway, and despite the big rumors earlier this winter it doesn’t sound like New York Mets’ righty Noah Syndergaard is going anywhere. Syndergaard, who has been the subject of speculation for weeks, is going to stay with the Mets unless another team blows them away with an offer, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. The sense around the industry, according to Sherman, is that the Mets aren’t likely to have anyone meet that price right now so Syndergaard should begin the season in Flushing. Sep 19,...

Could Yasiel Puig Be A Fit For New York Mets' Outfield?

By: Mike Phillips | December 8, 2018 The New York Mets have made it clear that they are looking for another right handed hitter to balance their lineup. While they have already been linked to A.J. Pollock in free agency and J.T. Realmuto via trade, the cost to land either could get expensive. It makes sense to consider a wide range of options to improve the roster, and another interesting scenario popped up recently as Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times is reporting that the Dodgers may shop disgruntled outfielder Yasiel Puig. Puig, who hit .267 with 23...
