12/11/2014 | Mets leave Winter Meetings with work to do

The first tangible piece of the Mets' Winter Meetings plan fell into place Thursday, as they agreed to terms on a one-year deal with outfielder John Mayberry Jr., acquiring the right-handed bat that they coveted. But the major items that populated their agenda coming into the Meetings remained unsolved.

12/9/2014 | Mets hitting snag in search for shortstop upgrade

The Mets' shortstop search has become a process of elimination. Only so many options existed at the start. Now, two days into the Winter Meetings, enough of that pool has dried up to threaten the entire enterprise. In essence, general manager Sandy Alderson said Tuesday, the trade market has become "increasingly limited."

12/8/2014 | Trading Gee would give Mets flexibility

Although the Mets still hope to upgrade at shortstop and procure a left-handed reliever and right-handed bench bat, they have focused most of their early energy at the Winter Meetings trying to trade Dillon Gee.

12/8/2014 | Closer job Parnell's to lose, but only when he's healthy

Stressing that the closer's job is "Bobby's to lose" but also noting that Bobby Parnell could actually begin the season on the disabled list, manager Terry Collins painted the picture of a wide-open closer's competition heading into Spring Training.

12/8/2014 | Collins knows 2015 is a make-or-break season

Terry Collins understands that the time for bashfulness has passed. Even if the Mets make only incremental upgrades to their roster from now until Spring Training, they expect to win next summer. And so Collins knows that 2015 may very well make or break him as a manager.

12/8/2014 | Haircut from deGrom included in Mets' charity auction

Few aspects of the Mets' 2014 season garnered more attention than Jacob deGrom, the eventual National League Rookie of the Year Award winner. Few aspects of deGrom's presence garnered more attention than his hair. Apparently deGrom's hair expertise is not limited to his own; as part of Major League Baseball's Stand Up To Cancer initiative at the Winter Meetings, fans can bid on -- among dozens of other items -- a date to make deGrom their personal barber.

12/8/2014 | No one elected to Hall of Fame by Golden Era Committee

12/8/2014 | Mets hope to continue busy offseason at Meetings

For weeks, the Mets have talked of their plan to search for a shortstop upgrade, the most significant piece remaining in what they foresee as a critical offseason. Now, with boots on the ground in San Diego, they can finally accelerate that process.

12/5/2014 | Winter Meetings chance for Mets to evaluate options

There is a decent chance the Mets do little of consequence at the Winter Meetings, which run Monday through Thursday in San Diego. The markets for the types of players they are trying to acquire may not fully form until January, and the Mets often wait until late in the winter to round out their roster. But that hardly means the meetings will be worthless for Sandy Alderson and company.

The Mets rounded out their coaching staff Thursday with a name familiar to hitting coach Kevin Long, naming Pat Roessler their assistant hitting coach.

Ten years after grabbing Justin Upton, the D-backs could follow a similar path in the 2015 First-Year Player Draft. Lake Mary (Fla.)

12/3/2014 | Harvey on board with Mets' plans for him in 2015

In the past, Matt Harvey has battled with the Mets over aspects of his rehab from Tommy John surgery. Not now. Nearly 14 months removed from the operation that derailed his rise as one of baseball's best pitchers, Harvey is "completely on board" with the Mets' plans to limit his workload next season.

12/3/2014 | Shortstop upgrade could put Mets over the top

One of the beautiful things about the Hot Stove season is that storylines occasionally take on a life of their own. That's how it is with the Mets and their attempts to upgrade at shortstop. If the Mets decided to trade one of their starting pitchers for a shortstop, it could help them make the playoffs in 2015 or they could regret it for a decade. This has become a hot topic because the team looks so solid in so many areas.

12/3/2014 | Rising in fame, Duda's quiet manner remains the same

If any doubt remained as to the extent of Lucas Duda's burgeoning fame, his trip to Japan demolished it. Everywhere he went, from ancient temples to modern restaurants (he adores sushi), people recognized the 30-homer first baseman. And the man who once puzzled his franchise with colossal power and an apparent lack of self-confidence is now a cornerstone of the Mets' plans.

12/1/2014 | Young Jr., Tejada considered at non-tender deadline

Though both Mets outfielder Eric Young Jr. and shortstop Ruben Tejada are both vulnerable prior to Major League Baseball's non-tender deadline, at least one of them is likely to remain a Met.
