Your Sunday morning dose of Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

MLB: New York Mets at Arizona Diamondbacks Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

Kevin Long is still a prime contender to be the next Mets manager. Here’s what he did to impress the team.

Everything else is pretty quiet in the Mets universe. But we did get a chance to catch up the infamous thumbs down guy.

Around the AL East

The Nationals top brass is facing some heat for the decision to fire Dusty Baker.

There’s plenty of changes brewing in the Braves staff too.

Just like we’re doing at Amazin’ Avenue, Fish Stripes is doing their own season reviews of Marlins players. Most recently, third baseman Martin Prado.

Around the Majors

There won’t be any local presence in the Fall Classic. The Astros came back from 3-2 down in the ALCS to beat the Yankees in seven games. They’re now en route to Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers starting Tuesday.

The Dodgers think their superstar shortstop Corey Seager will be ready for the World Series.

We also don’t know what LA’s rotation will look like past Clayton Kershaw.

After their exit from the NLCS, the Cubs decided pitching coach Chris Basio won’t return next season.

There’s also a big shakeup coming for the Giants coaching staff.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Brian Salvatore looked back at Nori Aoki’s contributions after he joined the Mets late in the season.

This Date in Mets History

A very strange World Series game took place on this date 17 years ago. Game 2 of the Subway Series, to be exact. You might remember it for the bizarre broken bat exchange between Mike Piazza and Roger Clemens. But don’t forget the 5-run rally the Mets made in the top the 9th to turn a seemingly wrapped up game into a nail-biter. Unfortunately, they couldn’t get a 6th.
