Meet the Mets

Bartolo Colon was a steady, reliable piece in the Mets’ fragile rotation. Power hitting aside, should they re-sign him?

With the Arizona Fall League under way, how are the Mets prospects faring out in the desert?

Two of the Mets’ best relievers are nominated for the Trevor Hoffman National League Reliever of the Year Award, which will be given out before Game 4 of the World Series.

The Mets are not playing in this year’s NLCS, but there have been some memorable LCS home runs hit both for and against them in their history. Look away if 2006 still stings.

Where are they now? Minor League Ball looked back on the top pitching prospects of 2012, and there are some familiar names on the list.

Around the NL East

The Nationals have some questions they will need to address this offseason.

Around the Majors

Clayton Kershaw was in top Kershaw form and beat the Cubs 1-0 to split the series at Wrigley.

Jose Bautista thinks there are other factors contributing to the Blue Jays losses.

Indians starter Trevor Bauer insists he is ready to pitch Game 3 despite his unusual injury.

The jersey Zach Britton wore in the Wild Card game for the Orioles was sold at auction, and Britton had some thoughts on the matter.

The Diamondbacks hired Mike Hazen as their new general manager, and are looking at Torey Lovullo as their next manager.

This Date in Mets History

In 1973, Jon Matlack and the Mets won Game 4 of the World Series to even the series 2-2.

In more recent history, Matt Harvey and Daniel Murphy took down the Cubs in Game 1 of the NLCS one year ago today.
