Our friends at BreakingT have a couple of new shirts celebrating the Mets’ pair of aces. With the news that the Mets had come to terms with Justin Verlander earlier today, our friends at BreakingT have released a couple of shirts celebrating the Mets’ new pair of aces. Is there a better way to celebrate the signing than picking up a snazzy new shirt? We think not. TAKE ME TO THE SHIRTS Having seen Jacob deGrom choose to sign elsewhere just a few days ago, the Mets acted quickly in inking Verlander to help fill the void in the team’s starting rotation. The 39-year-old...

Let’s find the Mets starting pitchers, Part 1

Photo by Christopher Pasatieri/ With Jacob deGrom gone, it’s time for the Mets to bring in other pitchers. With Jacob deGrom having officially signed a five-year deal with the Texas Rangers, the Mets’ need for starting pitching is even more obvious than it was when the offseason began. At the moment, the team’s rotation would include Max Scherzer and Carlos Carrasco, presumably followed up by the likes of David Peterson, Tylor Megill, and Elieser Hernández. As has been the case in our series on free agent relievers, we’ll follow a similar format here, running...

Mets Morning News for November 30, 2022

Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports Your Wednesday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets are looking to pair one of Jacob deGrom, Justin Verlander, or Carlos Rodon with Max Scherzer at the top of their rotation. Meeting with Verlander and Rodon are considered contingency plans if deGrom leaves. On that note, the Mets are set to meet with Rodon some time this week. Meanwhile, the Rays have reportedly reached out to Jacob deGrom. While Daniel Vogelbach will most likely be on the team in 2023, it’s unlikely he would be the...

Mets pick up Carlos Carrasco’s 2023 option

Mets pick up Carlos Carrasco’s 2023 option

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports The move adds some certainty to the rotation, which otherwise has many question marks behind Max Scherzer. The Mets are picking up Carlos Carrasco’s $14 million option for 2023, per Billy Eppler. The move is an unsurprising one for a team with a lot of holes to plug in its rotation next season. Now, there will be one fewer slot to fill. Carrasco went 15-7 with a 3.92 ERA over 152 innings in 2022, striking out 152 batters and walking 41. Carrasco notably struggled against teams over .500, posting a 6.71 ERA in 52 1⁄3 innings against such...

Jacob deGrom, Taijuan Walker officially opt out

Jacob deGrom, Taijuan Walker officially opt out

Photo by Dustin Satloff/ Two Mets pitchers will head to free agency, as expected. As the offseason begins to get underway in full, both Taijuan Walker and Jacob deGrom have exercised their opt outs and will head to free agency. With Chris Bassitt also declining his end of a $19M mutual option, that leaves the Mets with only Max Scherzer and Carlos Carrasco (presuming his option is picked up) remaining from last year’s top-5 starters. deGrom would’ve been due $30.5M in 2023, with an additional club option for 2024 at $32.5M for 2024 had he opted in. He’s been...
