Thanksgiving weekend was a quiet time for actual Mets news.
Noah Syndergaard spend part of his holiday helping to feed homeless people, per the Mets’ Twitter feed.
The Mets are reportedly one of two teams that have made an offer to free agent reliever Bryan Shaw.
Nothing against Shaw, who seems like a quality bullpen contributor… but the Mets have Jeurys Familia, A.J. Ramos and Jerry Blevins, not to mention unsuccessful starters Zack Wheeler, Steven Matz, Robert Gsellman and Seth Lugo, or last season’s middle relief crew that included Rafael Montero, Hansel Robles, Josh Smoker and Paul Sewald. There are plenty of arms that might be effective out of the bullpen and not nearly enough starters that they can count on. So maybe Sandy Alderson should prioritize his limited budget for offseason acquisitions a little bit better?
Queens Baseball Convention tickets have gone on sale, and you can even save a little bit of money if you buy them by tomorrow night to take advantage of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale.
This will be my first time going, and I’m looking forward to it.
