Meet the Mets

David Wright is confident in the direction the Mets are headed, suggesting that they have a firm foundation.

Owen Watson looked at one particular trend that helped decide the World Series.

Fangraphs was intrigued by one of Eric's tweets, so they set out to build a scouting report on Lucas Duda's arm.

Adam Rubin says that the signs point to Murphy and Cespedes playing elsewhere next year.

Rich Kubatko at MASN said that Daniel Murphy could be a fit for the Orioles.

World Series viewership was way up from the past few years, which is pretty good for a game that's supposed to be dead.

Daniel Popper said that San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich can relate to Terry Collins.

Around the Majors

As of late last evening, it appears the Nationals have changed course and are making a play to hire Dusty Baker instead of Bud Black.

The Blue Jays have named Tony LaCava interim general manager, in place of Alex Anthopolous.

The Orioles appear ready to give Matt Wieters a qualifying offer.

Yesterday at AA

Jeffrey and company said goodbye to the Mets in the only proper way, with a drink in hand on Amazin' Avenue Audio.

Pitching prospect Marcos Molina underwent Tommy John surgery, and is expected to miss the 2016 season.

Yoenis Cespedes is likely headed for other, slightly less green pastures.

Nine Mets are officially free agents, signalling the beginning of the offseason.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 1973, Bud Harrelson was fined for his fisticuffs with Pete Rose.
