It was quite the week for Mets fans. Well, to be more specific, it was quite the weekend for Mets fans, as the Queens Baseball Convention was on Saturday.
For those of you who weren't there, those of us in attendance fell in love with Brandon Nimmo a little bit, myself included:
Hello, my name is JT and this panel has made me no longer want to trade Brandon Nimmo for anyone. #QBC18- JT Terán (@jt_teran) January 20, 2018
Sal Licata was also taken down by a fan during the Rapid Fire segment on SNY's Mets Hot Stove panel.

Chris Flexen and Todd Hundley were also in attendance, hanging with the fans.
In non-QBC news, Adrian Gonzalez is ready for Spring Training. I'm not sure I'm ready, but at least he is.
I am extremely excited and ready for the 2018 season. Looking forward to a great ride with my new teammates and coaches with the @Mets- Adrián González (@Adrian_ElTitan) January 18, 2018
Can't wait for #SpringTraining to start.
I am ready! Are you? pic.twitter.com/biW0hTTR1e
There also seems to have been another Mets wedding this weekend. I do feel like I was just talking about Lugo getting engaged quite recently, though. Well, congratulations to Mr & Mrs. Lugo!!
Jay Bruce did a nice little Twitter chat where we found out some great fun facts about him, such as his favorite Met to sit with while traveling. Oh, and he settled the whole "is a hot dog a sandwich" debate (answer: it's not, let's stop this debate already).
We also learned that this shirt exists.
Some of the guys are already down in Port St. Lucie. Are they practicing or shooting a promo for a new music video? You decide.
Noah Syndergaard was not happy that Josh Smoker was not responding to his text messages, and he reached a level of petty that I have also reached when I think someone is ignoring me. Check out the third comment below...
To go back to Nimmo for a second, he and wife Chelsea (who is also an absolute sweetheart) enjoyed an Islanders game on Thursday. I do however wish you chose the other New York team... #LGR
And finally, the Mets announced their designs for Free Shirt Friday. I plan on going on July 6th, and am sure I will see you all there as well for that 🔥 shirt.
