Mets Morning News: Well, if you live on the west coast at least

USA TODAY Sports

In which there is no baseball to talk about, boo!

Meet the Mets

Toby Hyde checked in once again with the Mets Arizona Fall League contingent.

Greg Prince is having trouble picking a winner in this year's Fall Classic.

Yesterday at AA

I wrote about lefty pitching prospect, Steven Matz.

And Chris McShane wanted to know if you'd be rooting for the Victorinos or the Beltrans in this year's World Series.

Light a mup (mup mup)

Well, there's no actual baseball until Wednesday, but that just means you have a full 48 hours to get your World Series wagers in. The Red Sox have opened as the favorites.

Jim Leyland is stepping down as manager of the Tigers and will take an unspecified job with the Detroit organization.

Jeff Sullivan examines Koji Uehara's curveball, which apparently is a thing that exists.

And Ben Lindbergh analyzes Game 6 of the NLCS.

Around MLB

The Dodgers have reportedly signed Cuban middle infielder, Alexander Gurrero.

I approve of Dom Brown trolling the crap out of Phillies fans. I approve less of his choice of football fandom, but what are you going to do? At least Phillies fans can take solace in a new TV deal, because if there is one thing Ruben Amaro does, it's spend money wisely.

And now, your 2013 Mets highlight of the day to tide you over until pitchers and catchers report:

Kirk Nieuwenhuis blasts a Father's Day walk-off home run, completing an unlikely ninth-inning comeback (well, as unlikely as it gets with Carlos Marmol on the mound)

And your non-baseball link of the day:

I am pretty annoyed by the recent proliferation of oral history pieces on the internet. That said, if you are going to do an oral history piece, these are the dudes to do it with.
