Dellin Betances, the newest member of the New York Mets, had an interesting interview. He detailed his desire to win and how manager Carlos Beltran was a crucial figure in his decision to join the Queens ballclub.
As part of their offseason agenda, MLB.com ran a story about a prediction for each team in 2020. The Mets, according to the piece, will enjoy a healthy and productive Robinson Cano.
Here are the New York Metsâ€™s news and rumors of the day:
Metsmerized.com: Dellin Betances is now a member of the New York Mets. It sounded far-fetched before his injury-riddled 2019, but it is now a reality. According to the reliever himself, as he told writer and PA Announcer for the team Marysol Castro, â€œit just kinda worked out.â€
Apparently new manager Carlos Beltran had a lot to do with his signing. â€œBeltran becoming the manager, him throwing my name to management, just over and overâ€ he said.
â€œI know what the team we have is capable of, and I enjoy winning. And Iâ€™m going to be the best version of myself to help the teamâ€ he stated.
MLB.com: Major League Baseballâ€™s official website ran a predictions story in the last few hours. It covered all 30 teams in the league.
As for the Mets, second baseman Robinson Cano was the subject of the writeup. â€œFor totally understandable reasons, Robinson CanÃ³ has been lambasted and forgotten the last couple of years. But this is a Hall of Fame-caliber player who would still seem to have plenty left in his bat. It went unnoticed, but he hit a more-than-respectable .271/.325/.477 after coming off the injured list with left quad tightness on June 16,â€ the text read.
Michael Baron: We miss baseball, and we are sure you do, too. But Michael Baron is here to remind us that Spring Training isnâ€™t that far away.
â€œ35 days until Mets pitchers and catchers report to Port St. Lucie…â€ he tweeted from his official account. There you go, fans of the New York Mets!
