Early arrivals at Mets camp 00:01:10
SNY gets first look at New York Mets early arrivals to '19 Spring Training in Port St. Lucie. We see Matz and Syndergaard playing catch.

With free agents Manny Machado and Bryce Harper still available, some fans have wondered why the Mets have not aggressively pursued the two All-Stars. 

Yet GM Brodie Van Wagenen assured that the moves they have made this winter have significantly improved the team. 

"I think fans always have their right to an opinion...but I hope the fan base recognizes the amount of work we've done this offseason and number of needs that we addressed," he told reporters on Monday.

Could this be Mets 2019 bullpen? 00:00:30
The New York Mets have made a lot of moves this offseason to help strengthen their bullpen, is this how it will look in 2019?

Anthony McCarron, SNY.tv | Twitter | Before we throw too many compliments around, let's see how this revamped Mets' bullpen performs in the cauldron of the regular season for Brodie Van Wagenen's "Come get us" Mets. 
Relief pitchers are, after all, a famously combustible lot that can experience dips and surges in performance from year to year.
But the Mets' relief corps is, on paper, at least, much deeper this winter and the addition Friday of lefty Justin Wilson only bulks up a unit that mostly betrayed the club last year, even as Robert Gsellman and Seth Lugo emerged as bullpen assets.

John Harper, SNY.tv | Twitter | In the interest of equal time, if you will, I thought it only fair to bring the Mets into this week's Hall of Fame discussion, if not the actual proceedings. 

Because, let's face it, in a feel-good week for the Yankees, the only good news to come out of the voting for Mets' fans was the lack of a significant increase for Roger Clemens. The Rocket may be paying the big price for his steroids taint but in Queens he remains forever branded as a villain for once famously throwing that broken bat in Mike Piazza's direction.
