Will Alfredo Despaigne be the next Cuban superstar to make the jump to Major League Baseball? It is a legitimate question, as arguably 3 out of the 4 top players that were on the island have defected recently in pursuit of obtaining a Major League Baseball contract. Read More

The Mets will begin playing Spring Training games next week, and it is never too early to start looking at the projected Opening Day lineup.

After the resigning of Yoenis Cespedes, the Mets went from having a good outfield to having a great outfield. How Terry Collins decides to manage the playing time and matchups will be vital to this team’s success. Everyone in this group brings something different to the table, and I believe that is what makes this group of outfielders special. Along with the pitching staff, this group of outfielders will be a big factor in how this team performs both offensively and defensively. Read More
