Mets GM: Would argue we're NL East favorites

New GM Brodie Van Wagenen on Tuesday introduced Wilson Ramos, the fourth All-Star to join the Mets since Van Wagenen was hired in late October, and touted the revamped team as the division favorite.

Signing Wilson Ramos makes a lot more sense for the Mets than trading Noah Syndergaard to acquire J.T. Realmuto. Ramos has been one of the best-hitting catchers over the past three seasons (.298/.343/.483) and should give the Mets some much-needed stability there. And they still have Syndergaard! Next up: A.J. Pollock?

Callaway OK with Cano not running hard to first

Mets manager Mickey Callaway said new second baseman Robinson Cano, 36, deserves some leeway when it comes to running out infield grounders, as he is trying to protect his body.

Peter Alonso hit 36 home runs in the minors for the Mets and Mickey Callaway says the big first baseman has a chance to make the Opening Day roster — suggesting the Mets maybe won't worry about service time: "He's put himself in a position to make the team and maybe hit in the middle of the lineup."

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Mets manager Mickey Callaway says there won't be anything fancy with the way the team uses Edwin Diaz: "He's our closer. ... It makes the most sense to keep him in that role." Diaz recorded 57 saves for the Mariners but entered before the ninth inning just three times. So expect to see him remain as strictly a one-inning guy.

There is a lot of stuff slinging around Vegas in regards to the rumored Mets/Marlins/Yankees deal. With so many moving parts, it seems unlikely to move from rumor to reality, but you never know. It's been awhile since baseball had a great blockbuster three-teamer. The big clog in the machine: Would the Yankees really want to part with Miguel Andujar and a package of meaningful prospects for three years of Noah Syndergaard, who has started just 32 games over the last two years? Also, it still seems like any win-right-now scenario for the Mets would involve Thor, but Andujar and JT Realmuto would be an amazing return. Should be an interesting day in Vegas.
