1/27/2015 | Flores focused on improving, doing job

1/15/2015 | Monfort tells NY paper Tulo deal 'not happening'

The notion of the Rockies trading shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to the Mets, which all winter has been more rumors and reports than action, was doused with cold water Thursday at the MLB owners meeting in Paradise Valley, Ariz.

1/13/2015 | Lack of big trade shows Mets wisely playing long game

It's officially mid-January, and, unless you firmly believe in the ability of Wilmer Flores, the Mets still don't have a shortstop. Maybe this is surprising, maybe not, because the Mets, despite an obvious need, left the position untouched in the Hot Stove season a year ago, too. But the status-quo shortstop situation is a source of angst for some, a source of shrugs for others. It all depends on what you think of the Mets' competitive chances in 2015.

1/6/2015 | Pedro's lofty accomplishments belied his small stature
