Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen, clearly in the best shape of his life, challenged fellow GMs to a Home Run Derby

In Brodie Van Wagenen, the Mets have a new general manager -- and also a pretty charismatic figure in the front office. 
With just a few weeks left before pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training (!), Van Wagenen is getting closer to seeing Robinson Cano, Edwin Diaz, Jed Lowrie and his new-look Mets in action for the first time. 
And he's stoked. Just look at this hype video he put together and shared with the masses on Wednesday: 

Credit to Brodie for the self-effacing "I still need a lot of work my swing" at the end there.
So far, someone has taken him up on the offer ...
