MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

At times this season it felt like almost every man on the Mets’ roster needed surgery. Asdrubal Cabrera has bucked the trend though, and should avoid going under the knife for his knee problems.

Tim Tebow will make his debut in the Arizona Fall League today.

Amed Rosario and P. J. Conlon were named the Mets’ MLB Pipeline Prospects of the year.

Jose Reyes will likely be back next season.

Around the NL East

The Braves are expected to name Brian Snitker at their manager this week, removing the interim tag.

The Nationals took a 2-1 lead over the Dodgers in the NLDS, defeating them in a Monday matinee game.

The Diamondbacks have asked permission to speak with Nationals GM Mike Rizzo.

The Marlins are likely not going to do much to upgrade their bullpen this off-season. Good news for the Mets.

Undrafted free agent Jeff Singer is hoping to impress the Phillies in the Arizona Fall League this year.

Around MLB

David Ortiz’s career came to an end last night as the Indians finished off the Red Sox.

Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly apparently left tickets for the game to Ken Bone, the gentleman in the red sweater who became an internet sensation after asking a question at Sunday’s Presidential debate. No word on if Bone took Kelly up on the offer.

Ben Affleck stopped on the red carpet at the premiere of his new movie to watch the Sox game on a guy’s phone. He is apparently now cheering for the Cubs.

The Blue Jays reached the ALCS and swept the Rangers with a walk-off home run.

The Giants beat the Cubs in 13 innings to stave off elimination, but they had Madison Bumgarner’s scoreless streak broken when Jake Arietta hit a three-run homer off him in the second inning.

A man made a bet on Twitter that he’d eat one of everything on the menu at Dodger Stadium if Joe Blanton pitched 75-plus innings of league average ERA this year. Blanton pitched 80 innings of 2.48 ERA baseball, and so yesterday the man made good on his bet.

Yesterday at AA
