Wilson Ramos ready for 2019 00:02:11
Wilson Ramos is healthy for spring training for the first time in awhile. He looks forward to learning about his new teammates on the Mets.

One of the Mets' biggest needs this offseason was improving the catcher position. They not only wanted a solid defensive player, but one that also made an impact in the batter's box. 

Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen ended up signing veteran C Wilson Ramos, calling him "the perfect fit for us" back in December. Ramos has the power bat, strong arm, and defensive prowess at the dish that makes him the everyday catcher heading into Port St. Lucie on Tuesday, as pitchers and catchers officially reported to camp. 

Ramos said he is "100 percent" coming into camp, and has been working hard this offseason to last a full season -- the same goal he had when he signed with the Mets back in December.

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.

David Wright surprises NYIT 00:01:35
New York Mets legend David Wright took some time to surprise the baseball and softball teams of NYIT and give them some big league advice

David Wright likes what he sees when it comes to the Mets' new-and-improved roster. 

The former third baseman, who is now a special assistant to GM Brodie Van Wagenen, does not believe the lineup will struggle to score runs as it did last season. 

"Our lineup is certainly stronger and deeper than it was last year," he said on Friday.

The Mets have had a busy offseason this winter and Mets manager Mickey Callaway is expecting things to be different in his second season in Queens.

Callaway, in an interview with MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Monday, says they have "significantly upgraded" the team and credits GM Brodie Van Wagenen's tireless efforts to improve the club. 

What particularly stands out to Callaway, though, is how different the lineup will be in 2019.
