Mets, Tigers discussed Michael Conforto for J.D. Martinez trade

The proposed deal was a “real consideration” over the winter, according to a report. The Mets and Tigers seriously discussed a one-for-one swap that would have sent J.D. Martinez to New York for Michael Conforto, according to FanRag’s Jon Heyman. The Mets instead chose to re-sign Yoenis Cespedes, opting not to part with Conforto for one year of Martinez. Detroit was known to be open to selling this winter, but ultimately just sent Cameron Maybin to the Angels while holding onto veterans like Martinez, Ian Kinsler, Justin Verlander and Miguel Cabrera. The Mets explored outfield options...

Monday Morning Mets Mind Boggler: Managers

Can you name every manager in Mets history? Last week, we asked you to name every general manager in Mets history. For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’re asking you to do the same for Mets managers.

Moreover, while he did have major league managing experience, he had not managed a major league team since 1999, when he resigned from the Angels’ job...
