Mets morning news: Mets claim Recker, in talks with Wright

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

New York Mets related news and links for October 26, 2012.

Most of the Mets news yesterday was centered around Las Vegas, and none of it featured Charlie Samuels. Sandy Alderson spoke about the team's move to the PCL yesterday, and it doesn't sound as if he's overjoyed with the move. Wally Backman will be staying on as manager of the Mets AAA affiliate, hopefully he can keep the team out of trouble.

Marc Carig reported yesterday that the Mets have opened up contract talks with David Wright. What happens with Wright and R.A. Dickey this winter will easily be the big storylines for fans, so it's good to know that discussions are underway.

Yesterday at AA:

The Mets claimed catcher Anthony Recker from the Chicago Cubs. He's got to be better than Mike Nickeas, right?

Wilmer Flores has been off to a good start in winter ball, and Rob checked in on how the Mets players have been doing.

Around MLB:

The World Series continued last night, and the Giants took a 2-0 lead while representing the National League. Before the game got underway, Fangraphs took a look at Doug Fister.

There was a little bit of news from the Yankee side of town yesterday, as CC Sabathia underwent elbow surgery with Dr. James Andrews. There was also a bit of talk that Mariano Rivera might be ready to call it a career.

Finally for today, Minor League Ball took at look at Japanese teenager Shohei Otani. It will be interesting to see what happens with him this winter.
