Meet the Mets
The Amazins play their final game of the season this afternoon in Philadelphia, and they’re coming off a fairly riveting win. Asdrubal Cabrera’s 11th inning home run gave the Mets a 7-4 lead they wouldn’t relinquish. It was just their 70th win of the season, and fans and players alike seem pretty relieved it’s coming to an end.
General manager Sandy Alderson seems to be getting pretty annoyed over all the disarray in the Mets clubhouse.
It’s a strange time for manager Terry Collins, too, who’s now forced to both look back at his past and ponder his future in baseball.
Two early favorites have reportedly surfaced to come be Collins’s replacement.
Don’t expect the Mets to spend any money this offseason? Fear not, they could still get better!
Around the NL East
Last night’s game wasn’t nearly as enjoyable from Atlanta’s perspective.
Around the Majors
Pace of play issues, and now a concussion problem? Maybe MLB is more similar to the NFL than we thought.

In case you haven’t seen, we’re doing what we can to help people affected by Hurricane Maria, and hope you do that same.
This Date in Mets History
October 1 is a special date for the 1973 Mets. The team clinched the division title on this date, with just 82 wins. They then became a major factor in the upcoming mayoral race in NYC (don’t count on that happening this year.)
