Well this is it for our weekly adventures, Mets fans, as Spring Training is finally here! Isn't it great to have baseball back in our lives? I'm not going to lie though, I will miss conversing with you all once a week about the off-field shenanigans the Mets are up to -- yes, even despite those of you who would tweet at me asking if it was possible to do a weekly recap just of signings (it is, by the way, but where's the fun in just that?!).
What were the Mets up to this last week of no baseball? Well, for the most part, baseball, as most of them reported early to Port St. Lucie. No, I have no reports of Yoenis Cespedes riding into camp on horseback yet, but I will keep a lookout and hopefully can bring that update to you even without our weekly chats.
Dominic Smith did not report to Spring Training before some of the other hittersy (cue everyone making comments about how he of all players should've been there earlier). But don't worry, according to his Instagram story, he'll get there in time. It's also Bag Season, FYI.
Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares have essentially been attached at the hip these last few weeks. You know what they say, friends that steam together, stay together.
Jerry Blevins is literally me any time I'm in Florida. All of the hair products, Jerry. The frizz is just so real.

Noah Syndergaard is fully aware that the fate of the Mets season essentially lies on his shoulders (or should I say, in his arm...?)

Some people wear their hearts on their sleeves. Meanwhile, Yoenis Cespedes wears his face on his chest.
Todd Frazier's son already has impeccable taste in apparel.
We follow Lucas Duda.... or Lucas Duda follows us?
Lucas Duda was spotted at Mets complex yesterday per NY Post, but per his agent Dan Horwits: "Lucas lives in Port St Lucie and works out there during the offseason." Carry on.- Andy Martino (@martinonyc) February 6, 2018
Oh, and evidently we've all been spelling Brandon Nimmo's name wrong now for years. Thanks to MSG for the clarification! Also, Nimmo has frequented quite a lot of Islanders games since he's moved to NYC. Is it too late to get you to come root for King Henrik?

Well, Mets fans, I'd say it's been a great offseason with you all, but it was quite the slow offseason. It has been great sharing these fun little off-field updates with you all. Here's to the 2018 season, where hopefully I'll be sharing more fun on the field updates with you!
