Quick morning Mets roundup
Here are a few Mets-related things that have been happening over the past few days:
- 2012 Mets outfielder Fred Lewis signed a one-year deal to play for the Hiroshima Carp in Japan next year (Yakyu Baka)
- After eliminating it this year, the Mets will once again field a Gulf Coast League minor league team in 2013 (Real Dirty Mets Blog)
- GM Sandy Alderson is cracking jokes about the Mets’ outfield (let’s hope he’s also laying the groundwork for some moves to fix it) (MetsBlog)
- The Mets have signed RHP Greg Burke to a minor league deal and invited him to spring training (MetsBlog)
- Baseball is considering additional use of replay, changes to September roster rules, and protective headgear for pitchers (New York Times)
- You can buy the motorcycle the Mets presented to Gary Carter in 2002 and support an autism charity (Mets Today)
- The 7 Line is holding their 2013 Calendar Release Party at McFaddens on Saturday (The 7 Line)
There’s also an assortment of speculation about the Mets’ contract negotiations with R.A. Dickey and David Wright, but I’m not very interested in what the team’s beat writers think is happening.
Assuming real life things ever settle down, I’ll try to have some more fun baseball card / autograph stuff and minor league baseball stuff for you next week.
