Meet the Mets

The Red Sox may have won the World Series last night (SPOILER ALERT), but Greg Prince knows what is really on the mind of Mets fans.

For the degenerate gamblers among us, you can already place a futures bet on the 2014 World Series champion. The Mets opened at 115-1. Hmm, Rangers at 19-1 looks pretty tasty.*

*For entertainment purposes only.

And in case you were wondering what the Mets would look like with terrible beards, well...

Yesterday at AA

Chris McShane wrote about the dates you'll need to know for the coming offseason and urged us to consider the Trumbo. For the record, I'm as #TrueSABR as the next dude, but home runs are pretty valuable by linear weights, you guys, like even more than walks.

We had free agent profiles of Jhonny Peralta, Tim Hudson, and Shin-Soo Choo for you to peruse.

James K presented the Piazza Award for Worst Mets Position Player.

You will never have to hear that Fall Out Boy song again

The Red Sox put an end to baseball in 2013 (well, unless you spend your nights watching Dominican Winter League streams like the author) with a 6-1 laugher over the Cardinals. Over the Monster gives us their perspective on a season where everything went right for the Sox.

Viva El Birdos is maddeningly reasonable about the whole losing the World Series thing, while Will Leitch continues his valiant attempt to troll every other baseball fan on the planet.

Jeff Sullivan looks at how the Red Sox took down Michael Wacha last night.

Grant Brisbee notes that the Red Sox winning the World Series means anyone can win the World Series in 2014.

And let the Big Papi for Hall of Fame bloviating begin! Poor Edgar Martinez.

Around MLB

Jorge Arangure does excellent work over at Sports on Earth covering how recent citizenship changes in the Dominican Republic might affect major league baseball.

And now, your 2013 1986 Mets highlight of the day to get you through the long, cold winter: Darryl Strawberry extends the Mets lead in Game 7 of the 1986 World Series. Someday, someday.

And your non-baseball link of the day: From Esquire: Bill Murray is awesome.
