Who should the Mets target this offseason?

Who should the Mets target this offseason?

Baseball’s offseason is here, which means rumors are flying. Few teams have more questions — and perhaps opportunities (thanks, Steve Cohen) — than the Mets, who need firepower at the plate and on the mound. Will Jacob deGrom return to the rotation? Could he be replaced or even joined by Justin Verlander? If Brandon Nimmo...

Should the Astros pursue Brandon Nimmo?

Photo by Adam Hunger/ To address their outfield need, the Astros could make a big splash in free agency by signing former Mets outfielder. After Michael Brantley’s departure, the Astros are said to be looking for a left-handed hitting corner outfielder according to The Athletic. With Brantley leaving an important void to fill in the lineup, there’s someone who can take his place, someone that actually is pretty similar to Uncle Mike and can bring great value to the Astros lineup. That man is Brandon Nimmo, who just put up a 5.1-bWAR season – that would have tied...

Poll: Should Texas sign Brandon Nimmo?

Photo by Elsa/ Would you want the Rangers to sign Brandon Nimmo to a five year, $100 million deal? Free agent projections are out from Fangraphs and ESPN, and so it is that time again — time for the “should the Rangers sign This Player?” series of offseason polls. Today we are looking at New York Mets center fielder Brandon Nimmo. At Fangraphs, Ben Clemens has Nimmo at 5 years, $110 million, while the Median Crowdsource is at 5 years, $100 million. Kiley McDaniel at ESPN has him at 5 years, $118 million. We are going to go with the Clemens projection. Would you...

Should the Mets sign Brandon Nimmo or Trea Turner?

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ We compare two of the Mets’ offseason targets Two of the more prominent names to come out of the early offseason discussions for the Mets are old friend Brandon Nimmo and old rival Trea Turner. Both of these players are free agents, both have appeal to the Mets, but neither is a perfect fit for the team. They are also more similar than appear at first blush and, while it would be great to see the Mets sign both players, with the need to rebuild the rotation and bullpen, it seems unlikely that both wind up in Queens. Nimmo is a known quantity in...

More suitors stepping up for New York Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo

It is not a secret that the New York Mets want to keep Brandon Nimmo around for 2023 and beyond. According to reports, the Mets consider Nimmo one of their top priorities this offseason. As they already locked up their other top priority, Edwin Diaz, to a long term deal, it makes sense for the […] More suitors stepping up for New York Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Jeff McNeil wins Silver Slugger Award

Jeff McNeil wins Silver Slugger Award

Photo by Elsa/ McNeil is the first Mets second baseman to win the award since 1999.

The team also extended the qualifying offer to Jacob deGrom, Brandon Nimmo, and Chris Bassitt, while it chose not to do so with Taijuan Walker. The Mets also picked up their option on relief pitcher John Curtiss, which was to be expected given the fact that they signed him earlier this year while he was still recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Brandon Nimmo did Brandon Nimmo things in 2022

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ He had a high on base percentage, came up with some timely hits, and ran to first base when he walked. Brandon Nimmo has never been an All Star. He has never won a Gold Glove or a Silver Slugger. He has never placed in NL MVP voting. But Nimmo has, in many ways, been the heart of the Mets since debuting in 2016, holding down the leadoff spot and serving a core member of the roster for over half a decade. So it shouldn’t surprise anybody that Nimmo did all the things that make Nimmo special yet again in 2022. Nimmo’s propensity for getting on...

The team officially announced Edwin Díaz’s five-year deal with the club which Jon Heyman argues is a good deal. The Mets hired Reds assistant pitching coach Eric...

The Rockies have mentioned that they are looking to address center field for 2023 among other areas and the name that has come up the most among fans and outlets is that of Nimmo.
