Meet The Mets
The Mets coaching and training staff went through a major shake-up. The team fired longtime pitching coach Dan Warthen, and head athletic trainer/part-time grim reaper Ray Ramirez got the axe, too.
Having been rumored to be staying in the organization, it was announced that Terry Collins will be accepting a position as "Special Assistant to the GM."
With the search for a new skipper underway, Joel Sherman thinks Sandy Alderson needs to let some 'long-shot' candidates have a chance to manage.
Sandy may have also hinted at a possible pitching coach candidate.
Around the NL East
The Derek Jeter era has officially begun in Miami.
Astros owner Jim Crane sent three planes to Puerto Rico to assist with relief efforts. Two planes are filled with over 300,000 pounds of supplies, while the third is to retrieve family members of the Astros as well as bring back cancer patients and those with medical conditions who have been unable to receive treatment since the storm.
The adoption of advanced analytics and 'Moneyball' style of play have changed how the game is played. The result may not necessarily be for the better.
