Your Wednesday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. 

MLB: NLCS-Chicago Cubs at Los Angeles Dodgers Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

This animated film from Victory Journal recreated the Mets’ postgame celebration from their 7-6 win over Houston in the 1986 NLCS. Note that it’s mildly NSFW-ish.

Tim Tebow’s first Arizona Fall League hit came in his 13th at-bat. Sean Newell of VICE Sports pitched the conspiracy theory that this was no hit at all.

Endy Chavez reflected on his incredible NLCS catch in 2006. The 38-year-old last appeared in a major league game with the Mariners in 2014.

Journeyman reliever Burke Badenhop was critical of the Tim Tebow signing in a column for MLBTradeRumors.

10 years ago today, Adam Wainwright’s 12-to-6 curveball ended the Mets’ season.

The Mets have arbitration decisions to make on 12 players.

Around the NL East

Giancarlo Stanton, A.J. Ramos, and Ricky Nolasco helped create a mural in Brazil to honor late teammate Jose Fernandez.

Around Major League Baseball

Yasmani Grandal and Justin Turner homered in the Dodgers’ 6-0 shutout of the Cubs. Now up two games to one in the NLCS, the Dodgers touched up Jake Arrieta for four earned runs and six hits over five innings. With the shutout loss, Chicago’s offensive struggles in the postseason continued.

Kenley Jansen, who recorded four outs in Tuesday’s non-save situation, will be a highly pursued free agent this winter. The Mets, Cubs, and Yankees could all be in competition for his services, writes John Harper of the Daily News.

Rich Hill’s Game 3 win capped off an improbable return to the major leagues.

Julio Urias will become the youngest starter in postseason history when he takes the mound in Game 4.

On the brink of elimination, the Blue Jays pulled out a 5-1 win in Game 4 of the ALCS at Rogers Centre. Despite the 3-1 series deficit, several members of the Blue Jays were optimistic about their chances to advance.

Indians reliever Andrew Miller is making history this postseason.
