Lifetime of Mets skepticism makes excitement for Francisco Lindor hard

One of the curses of being a New York Mets fan is this constant state of tension and skepticism we’ve been accustomed to. We’ve been trained over the years to not get excited when something too good to be true happens. Yes, right now the culture feels different.

Mets farm system has done a phenomenal job at developing major leaguers

It seems like a lot of years have passed since the New York Mets had one of the best farm systems in baseball. Prior to the 2015 World Series run, the organization was routinely one of the best. Years of losing will do this. In more recent years, with many top prospects getting traded away […] Mets farm system has done a phenomenal job at developing major leaguers - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - New York Mets News & Fan Community

Mets might not sign Trevor Bauer or George Springer and that’s okay

I may be speaking too soon. If I am, the worst thing that can happen is the New York Mets do actually complete deals with two of the biggest remaining free agents. It doesn’t feel like the Mets will pursue Trevor Bauer or George Springer. Heading into this offseason, it felt as if they would […] Mets might not sign Trevor Bauer or George Springer and that’s okay - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - New York Mets News & Fan Community

Mets rotation needs to add a cheap veteran into the mix for insurance

Throughout the offseason, it’s been apparent that the New York Mets plan was to acquire two starting pitchers. Whether the Mets acquire one or two starters, their roster is left with a hole, in the form of Steven Matz. In 2020, Matz went 0-5 with a 9.68 ERA, and a 1.696 WHIP. Since August 2nd, […] Mets rotation needs to add a cheap veteran into the mix for insurance - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - New York Mets News & Fan Community

Mets: Why they need to avoid making any more big trades

Last week, the New York Mets made arguably the biggest move of the offseason, making a blockbuster trade to the Cleveland Indians to acquire the services of All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor and veteran starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco.

Mets: Three reasons I’m just as excited to land Carlos Carrasco

Regardless of the end results, it will ultimately go down as the Francisco Lindor trade.

NY Mets secret weapon for the 2021 season is Dellin Betances

Mets avoid arbitration with eight players, including Francisco Lindor

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports The Mets will only have one arbitration case this winter, as they could not come to terms with J.D. Davis. The Mets handled almost all of their arbitration business today, coming to terms with eight of the nine players eligible for arbitration. Most notably, the Mets managed to avoid arbitration with recently acquired Francisco Lindor, as the two agreed to a $22.3 million, one year deal—the fourth highest total in major league history—which will surely act as a starting off point for a long term deal between them. The second most...
