#Good #Morning, #Mets fans! #This is my first of what I hope to be many morning briefings. #Let’s get into it.

#Latest #Mets #News

#Trevor #Bauer is allegedly looking for a five- or six-year deal worth over $200 million, says #Jon #Heyman, who also said #Bauer was looking for around $36-$40 million annually. #His agent, #Rachel #Luba, declined to comment on the report.

There are always reports about what a free agent wants, but what they can get is often a different story. #Will #Bauer get the money he wants over five or six years?

#Also, #Steve #Cohen wants to remind you that it will take time for the #Mets to replenish their farm and ultimately make big splashes like the #Padres did this week while still retaining top talent in the system.

#Marcus #Stroman is working on a new pitch–a circle-change–that he tells #Pitching #Ninja’s #Rob #Friedman was “inspired” by #Robert #Gsellman‘s pitch.

#Bob #Nightengale says the #Chicago #Cubs, now in full-on fire-sale mode, are shopping catcher #Willson #Contreras. #He is entering his last year of arbitration and is projected to make just north of $6 million.

The #Kansas #City #Royals signed veteran pitcher #Ervin #Santana to a minor-league deal. The 38-year-old last pitched in the majors in 2019 with the #White #Sox. #Santana also pitched for the #Royals in 2013.

#Tim #Ryder and #Jacob #Resnick joined up on the latest #Simply #Amazin’ podcast to talk about the latest flurry of #Padres’ trades and what that means for the #Mets’ chances at some of the bigger free agents.

#Expect a heavy emphasis on analytics and scouting from #Jared #Porter, says #Rich #Mancuso.

#With the year coming to a close, and an upsetting 2020 season for the #Metsies, #Michelle #Ioannou takes a look at the #Mets’ bright silver lining from the year.

#On #This #Day in #Mets #History

#So I was originally going to write about how there was nothing to write about in today’s “On #This #Day in #Mets #History” section. I was browsing and browsing and browsing for important events or birthdays on #December 30, but then #Mojo #Hill tipped me that today is #Ralph #Milliard‘s birthday.

“WHO?” you may ask yourself, as I did #Mojo. #Milliard is a now-47-year-old who former infielder for the #Mets for one season. #It was 1998 — his last in the majors — and he had one at-bat. #He struck out.

#But! #Milliard was a defensive replacement in six games, and he pinch-ran three times, scoring each time. (#Show me a stat where another player scored 100 percent of the times he pinch-ran, and let’s make it a minimum of three pinch runs, for #Ralph #Milliard‘s sake.)

#His final run in the major leagues came as one of three in the top of the 9th in what ended up as an 11-inning win against the #Astros on #September 16. #He pinch-ran for #John #Olerud, then #Mike #Piazza came up next and hit a three-run home run off none other than #Billy #Wagner to put the #Mets up 3-2. The game went to extras, and #Todd #Hundley won the game for the #Mets in the 11th. #How’s that for some late ’90s nostalgia.

#Happy birthday, #Ralph #Milliard!

#Oh, also today? The great #Sandy #Koufax turns 85 years young. #Happy birthday, and happy new year, #Sandy (and to everyone reading this).
