Meet the Mets

New Met manager Mickey Callaway has had a rather unconventional path to take charge of a big league ball club.

Steven Matz seems pretty excited to get to work with new manager Mickey Callaway.

There’s another Indian the team may be keen on bringing to Queens.

Around the NL East

The Nationals’ search for a new manager continues, but it’s not the only big question the team has going into the offseason.

A few Marlins are finalists for a Gold Glove, but their arguably best defender has been left out of the mix.

Meanwhile, the new ownership group has put the team in full-scale cost-cutting mode.

The Padres are poaching from the Phillies coaching staff. Matt Stairs is headed to San Diego to be the hitting coach.

Around the Majors

An inning away from going down 3 games to 1, the Dodgers made a massive surge in the 9th to even up the World Series against the Astros.

Yulieski Gurriel will be suspended for his offensive gesture against Yu Darvish, but it won’t go into effect until next season.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Craig Kimbrel and Kenley Jansen are your top relievers of the year.

This Date in Mets History

It’s a terrific anniversary for Tom Seaver. Just days after winning the World Series with the Miracle Mets of 1969, he found out on this date that he had won the National League’s Cy Young Award.
