Your Wednesday morning dose of Mets and MLB news, notes and links!

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

Meet the Mets

Josh Thole and Ike Davis are officially Super Two eligible this offseason, meaning the Mets will have to give them raises over the league minimum through arbitration this season.

What kind of moves will the Mets make this offseason? Anthony DiComo answers that and more in his mailbag.

The Angel Pagan trade didn't work out for the Mets but it sure worked out for Angel, who was very down last season after his slow start.

Wilmer Flores is hitting in Venezuela.

Around the Playoffs

Game one of the World Series begins tonight at 8 PM on Fox, as Justin Verlander throws for the Tigers up against Barry Zito for the Giants.

Around the Majors

The Marlins have fired manager Ozzie Guillen after one disappointing season. Sorry but is anybody really all that surprised that that Marlins team imploded in the fashion that it did? In other Marlins news, the mayor of Miami had a great quote about the franchise's owner.

Bobby Valentine spoke with Bob Costas and he dished out some blame to David Ortiz, who he says quit on the team.

Carlton Fisk was arrested for DUI after driving through a cornfield in Illinois. Fisk was apparently found asleep in the car next to an open bottle of vodka.

Dodgers' closer Kenley Jansen had heart ablation surgery yesterday to restore his heart's rhythm.

The Padres released slugging pitcher Micah Owings. Honestly, I'd like to see what he could do with some more at bats.

Yesterday At AA

Here's Chris' article about Josh Thole qualifying for Super Two status.

Giants or Tigers? Who are you picking in this year's World Series?

Rob Castellano reviews the 2012 St. Lucie Mets' hitters.

James reviews the Mets' production at first base.

Looks like it's time to say goodbye to Mike Pelfrey and perhaps Andres Torres, as well.

Some people root for the underdog but Michael Donato will not.
