Long considered the frontrunners to sign George Springer, the New York Mets ultimately missed out on the All-Star outfielder.
Maybe some other teams fancy joining in with the MLB offseason.
It was reported the New York Mets are closing in on an agreement with free agent reliever Brad Hand.
The Mets offseason isn't done yet. New York made the biggest of winter MLB trade when they acquired Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco on Thursday, but they have plenty more work to do with this roster.
The Mets and Indians have agreed to a trade, sending Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco to New York in exchange for four young players.
The free agency of George Springer is likely to come down to the Mets and Blue Jays.
Cutting payroll for 2021, Kris Bryant trade rumours are surfacing once again. The All-Star third baseman is a free agent at the end of next season, and the Chicago Cubs could look to swing a deal this offseason.
Heading into free agency, Corey Kluber has to prove he can stay healthy. The former Cy Young winner has showcases planned for January after pitching under 40 innings across the last two seasons.
The New York Mets ruled themselves out of a free agency pursuit for J.T. Realmuto by signing James McCann. With catcher sorted, the onus is on the Mets to spend big elsewhere, and they are among the favourites to land George Springer and Trevor Bauer.
New York Mets fans will be delighted that the loathed Wilpons are now gone. New York's other team will now want to announce themselves to the MLB world. With the financial problems surrounding other clubs, the New York Mets are in a prime position to take advantage of a slow-moving free agency period.
One of the premier starting pitching free agents is off the market. Charlie Morton has agreed to join the Atlanta Braves on a one-year pact, joining fellow veteran Drew Smyly in bolstering a young rotation.
The New York Mets landed a veteran, proven starting pitcher on Wednesday. Marcus Stroman, who sat out the 2020 season, accepted his qualifying offer to lock him in to the 2021 season with the Mets, but that doesn't take New York out of the starter free agent market.
The New York Mets head into the 2020/21 offseason with money to spend. Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto will be one of their top priorities after turning down club options on Wilson Ramos and Robinson Chirinos.
Every Mets fan would have taken this outcome at the start of 2020. Having missed out on a place in the largest playoff pool in MLB history with a top five offence, this probably isn't the expected conclusion, but it just shows the relief in Queens at the impending end of the Wilpon's ownership.
