Good evening Mets fans, tonight on the Rising Apple Report, Sam Maxwell, RA editor-in-chief, Danny Abriano, and I, hope to hold your attention speaking about the Metropolitans’ week that was. The Winter Meetings ended last week, but teams continue to sign free agents at a furious pace. The run is currently on relief pitchers. We will discuss possible free agent options and scenarios in the Mets bullpen.Dec 10, 2013; Orlando, FL, USA; New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson is surrounded by reporters during the MLB Winter Meetings at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort.

We’ll also review how the current 25-man roster is shaping up. Trade rumors involving Ike Davis and Daniel Murphy continue to heat up, and as is our new custom, we’ll continue reminiscing, this week, over the players who have worn #51 in Mets history.
Other items to tackle – the Mets have an opening for a 5th starter, and Fangraphs recently published their Mets top prospects list.
We always wind up getting into tertiary issues as well. So, there will be plenty for everyone, which should make for an entertaining listen. And by all means, please call. We’d love to have you. Phone in at 646-929-0337.
Tune in tonight at 6:30pm EST
