New York Mets baseball returns on April 1 in full force. It’s an undeclared National Holiday in America. Major League Baseball’s Opening Day signals to the country that spring is actually here and it’s time to start thinking about getting on that keto diet you’ve been researching all winter long.

This offseason was a fun one for the Mets. Even if it didn’t go the way we all wanted or expected, there were plenty of interesting stories, some intriguing transactions, and a whole lot of anticipation.

Let’s put a bow on the offseason and move on from yearning for baseball and turn our gaze to watching some actual games be played.

First, let’s look back at some of my favorite stories from this offseason.

Mets were in on literally everyone this winter

Writing about what the Mets may do, should do, and are doing is always my favorite part of the offseason. It’s what baseball fans seem to enjoy discussing the most. Games are self-explanatory. Roster building is pure opinion.

I don’t think there was a single free agent the Mets didn’t at least consider. Based on all of the offseason rumors we saw flash across our screens, the front office was a 24/7 operation with the goal to turn over every stone.

Considering the moves they did make, I tend to believe they truly were doing their homework on everyone. Who would have thought they would end up with so many depth pieces rather than the household names?

Time will tell whether or not this strategy works. In the meantime, I’m ready to see what guys like Kevin Pillar and Taijuan Walker can offer the ball club.
