Lucas Duda's walkoff home run last night was incredibly unlikely in a number of ways.

Travis d'Arnaud will have surgery this week to remove a bone spur in his right elbow. Meanwhile, Kirk Nieuwenhuis remains hospitalized with an infection.

In order to improve, the Mets need David Wright to once again be a star. Here are some reasons why the Mets will be better in 2015.

Rafael Montero made a strong final start and the Mets don't plan to make a decision on his 2015 role until spring training.

Curtis Granderson may move to left field next season. Considering how bad his arm has been, this is definitely the right decision.

Bobby Abreu plays his last game today and the 40-year old outfielder helped build up the pipeline of Venezuelan ballplayers.

Around the NL East

The Nationals beat the Marlins 5-1, while the Braves defeated the Phillies 4-2.

Giancarlo Stanton looks like he's recovered from his injuries after taking a fastball to the face.

Around the Majors

Both the AL Central and NL Central are undecided on the last day of the regular season.

Here's what has happened since the Royals last made the playoffs...

A scoring change has brought Felix Hernandez's ERA down by 16 points, which could surely help him in the Cy Young race.

Joe Girardi ripped into his team before Derek Jeter's home finale. Masahiro Tanaka, meanwhile, goes into the offseason on a bad note as the Red Sox torched him.

Juan Uribe is the Dodgers' manager today and Clayton Kershaw will serve as pitching coach.
