Shareholders holding a total of 9,485 shares cast "yes'' ballots. "No'' votes were turned in by those claiming just 45 shares. There were 10 abstentions.

Mets: Wilmer Flores and Mets Employees Giving Out Turkeys to Families in Need

                      
               

                           This Thursday, Wilmer Flores, transported by Uber, will join forces with Mets employees to distribute more than 500 turkeys to families in need across all five boroughs.The Mets will work with the New York Common Pantry to hand out turkeys in Manhattan, Agape Food Rescue in Brooklyn, Cayuga Centers in the Bronx, The River Fund NY in Queens and Project Hospitality in Staten Island.Each family will also receive ticket vouchers redeemable to select games during the 2018 season.

The Mets will continue the tradition of providing complete Thanksgiving meals to 25 families in Corona and Elmhurst, two of the neighborhoods closest to Citi Field. Wilmer Flores and Mets staff will personally deliver the packages to the families’ homes in conjunction with NYPD Community Affairs.




Mets: “Considering” A deGrom Contract Extension







“A club source indicated Tuesday that general manager Sandy Alderson may still engage deGrom’s camp in negotiations at some point this winter. DeGrom is under club control through 2020, making it likely the Mets would seek a five-year deal that would buy out his three remaining arbitration years. The Mets would then receive a team-friendly contract for two added years of control. The 29-year-old deGrom went 15-10 with a 3.53 ERA as the only Mets starting pitcher to remain healthy for all of last season while pitching a career-best 201 ¹/₃ innings.”

That was from the NY Post and you can read more of that article here.

“ Considering “ is becoming the new buzzword for the Mets/media now. I am beginning to hate it as much as hearing “narrative”.

Mets: Frank Viola to Binghamton and Mets Add New Asst. Hitting Coach





Interesting move of Viola to Binghamton.

From the NY Post:

Frank Viola will become the new pitching coach at Double-A Binghamton, switching spots with Glenn Abbott , who will assume Viola’s role with Triple-A Las Vegas.

Tom Slater has been added to Callaway’s staff as the assistant hitting coach. Slater was formerly a hitting coach in the Yankees’ minor-league system.

Mets: To Add Three To Medical/Training Staff




It really is amazing how the Mets went from years of “there isn’t a problem here with our training/medical staff” to “Yes. There was a problem.” Hopefully this works out. Besides the “High Performance director”, I wonder what the other two positions being filled are.

From The NY Post

“Alderson indicated the team will add a “high performance director” at the top of the medical department.

“That will allow us to incorporate more technology related to exertion, recovery and a host of other things that we follow with biometrics,” Alderson said at the general managers’ meetings.”
