The Mets want a reunion with former reliever Jerry Blevins...but only if the price tag is reasonable. Early in the offseason, Blevins was asking for a three-year deal in the $5-$6M range. However, with the reliever market being as sparse and slow as it is, the 33-year old has rethought his demands. Now seeking a two-year contract, the Mets may be giving their former team member a second look.

Here’s what else is going on in the National League East:

  • Ryan Howard isn’t retired, you guys. Any takers?
  • In case you really need a pick-me-up to brighten your mood before work, here are tryouts the Nationals have for the Racing Presidents.
  • Take a look at this in depth interview with Braves prospect Kolby Allard.
  • A.J. Ramos will be the closer for the Marlins in 2017.
  • The Phillies may finally have a good first baseman.
  • Is Shawn Kelly Washington’s next closer?
  • Let’s take a moment to honor and remember the Braves first African American player, Sam Jethroe.
  • Get the inside scoop on Braxton Garrett, Miami’s top prospect.
  • Let’s hope Steve Matz gets back to tip top shape, because when he was healthy he was an absolute beast.
  • See what Keith Law thinks about the Phillies prospects.
  • The Nationals have signed Joe Nathan and Matt Albers to minor league deals. Invitations to spring training have been extended to both of them.
  • The Braves 2017 draft slots have been released.
  • The good news: The Marlins have done some important signings this offseason. The bad news: those signings literally mean nothing if Miami doesn’t score, and score consistently.
  • Noah Syndergaard will be starting for the Mets on Opening Day.
