Meet the Mets

Lucas Duda hit a pair of home runs, Bartolo Colon enhanced his trade value, and the Mets crushed the Dodgers 11-3 on Sunday.

Even though the Mets hit four home runs in Los Angeles yesterday, the most exciting play of the game may have been the 5-4-3-2 triple play that our boys turned with the help of Yasiel Puig and his aggressive running style.

It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows for the Metsies, though. David Wright had to leave the game with neck spasms, and Daniel Murphy later joined him on the bench with a sore calf muscle.

Although the Dodgers and Angels seem desperate for a starting pitcher right now, could the Mets get more for Colon if they shop him over the winter?

19-year-old Dominican Marcos Molina is pitching very well for the Brooklyn Cyclones. Molina is quickly rising up the Mets' prospect rankings.

Around the NL East

The Phillies rode a strong Jerome Williams outing to a 7-1 win over the Cardinals.

Atlanta rallied late, but could not catch up to the Reds. Cincinnati won 5-3 for a split of the weekend series.

The Marlins blew an opportunity to move ahead in the Wild Card standings when they lost their rubber game to the Rockies 7-4.

The seemingly unstoppable Nationals banged out nine extra-base hits in a 14-6 thrashing of the Giants.

Around the Majors

South Korea defeated Chicago's Jackie Robinson West to win the Little League World Series. Despite the loss, I'm sure that Curtis Granderson is still very proud of his hometown squad.

In honor of Mo'Ne Davis's accomplishments this summer, here is a history of girls in the Little League World Series.

The Athletics already have a bunch of catchers, but they went ahead and traded cash considerations to Texas for Geovany Soto anyway.

Paul Konerko got a nice gift from the Yankees before his final game at Yankee Stadium.

Brian McCann ended Konerko's final trip to the Bronx with a pinch-hit, walk-off home run in the bottom of the 10th.

In case you were stuck on the East coast all weekend, here is some of the best of Dog Baseball night at Dodger Stadium.

Yesterday at AA

On this date in 2009, the Mets traded Billy Wagner for Eddie Lora and Chris "The Animal" Carter.
