With the playoffs still in progress, actual Mets news is going to be scarce over the next few weeks. There is still plenty to speculate about though, most notably who the Mets could reasonably acquire to bolster their awful offense.
Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki are two names that have been tossed around a lot, but don't sound like they'll be available. Jose Abreu certainly will be, but we tackled the idea of whether spending big on him would be a particularly wise thing to do.

Chris took on the topic of tendering another current Met, relief pitcher Scott Atchison.
There was only one game going on last evening, and it was a good one. The Tigers managed to defeat the A's on the back of a fantastic performance from Justin Verlander, and will now face the Red Sox in the ALCS.
Luckily for everyone, we don't have to worry about what to do on a Friday night with no baseball. The NLCS gets underway this evening in St. Louis with Zack Greinke taking on Joe Kelly.
Buck Martinez should probably re-read Moneyball at some point, assuming he's actually read it in the first place.
