Meet the Mets

The manager search continues, and Alex Cora looks like an excellent fit according to his current team.

Cora isn’t the only former Met on the list of potential managerial candidates.

Former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is also in the mix.

The Mets have a new AAA affiliate, but the new partner for the Las Vegas 51s remains unclear.

Around the NL East

After another early playoff exit, expect some changes for the Nationals this coming offseason.

Braves fans are also looking themselves in the mirror to try and figure the next steps for the team.

The Phillies are interviewing the Indians pitching coach as their potential next manager.

The Marlins are donating a healthy sum of money to hurricane relief.

Around the Majors

A dramatic play at the plate helped the Astros take a 2-game lead over the Yankees in the ALCS.

The Yanks’ one run in that game came on a rather unusual play.

The NLCS also got underway Saturday night, and Yasiel Puig proved to be the star as the Dodgers took Game 1.

The National League game also featured a high-profile play at the plate, one that got Cubs manager Joe Maddon ejected.

If the Dodgers are going to make the World Series, they’ll have to do it without superstar shortstop Corey Seager.

This Date in Mets History

Big playoff games have been happening in Houston this year. That may leave Mets fans nostalgic for one of the biggest playoff games in franchise history, which took place in the Astrodome on this date 31 years ago.
