Meet the Mets

Manny Acta was the latest candidate to interview for the managerial position.

Luis Guillorme will play in the Arizona Fall League and he hopes to one day follow a path to majors like Amed Rosario.

Around the NL East

Former Braves shortstop Walt Weiss could join Atlanta’s coaching staff next season.

The Red Sox make sense as a trade partner for the Marlins when they start shedding their payroll.

Rhys Hoskins’s splash into the majors was one of the best in Phillies’ history.

Around the Majors

The Yankees defeated Dallas Keuchel and the Astros and are now just one win away from advancing to the World Series.

The Cubs avoided elimination with a win over the Dodgers.

Tony La Russa’s time with the Diamondbacks’ front office will come to the end at the end of the month.

Corey Seager has been sidelined with an injury during the series with the Cubs, but the Dodgers are hopeful he will be ready for the World Series.

Reliever Glen Perkins will not have his option picked up next season by the Twins.

Yesterday at AA

Robert Wolff reviewed Seth Lugo’s up and down season and Travis Taijeron’s brief stint in the majors at the end of the season.

This Date in Mets History

Two magical runs came to an end on this date, and both times the batter did not swing the bat.

First, in 1999 it was a walk that ended the Mets’ attempt at a comeback against the powerhouse Braves. Despite battling back from a 5-0 deficit, the Mets eventually fell to Atlanta when Kenny Rogers walked in the winning run to send the Braves to the World Series.

Despite Endy Chavez’s spectacular catch, the 2006 Mets fell short of their ultimate goal when Carlos Beltran got caught looking at strike three and the Mets once again just ran out of magic.
