Meet the Mets
David Wright underwent another surgery, this one on his back, and vowed he’s not ready to retire.
Former Mets manager Bobby Valentine thinks the Mets should pursue two of his former players to fill the seat vacated by Terry Collins: Joe McEwing and Robin Ventura.
Former Mets slugger Carlos Beltrain also offered his thoughts, and believes Alex Cora is the man for the job.
Filling the managerial vacancy is just one of 11 tasks Alderson has to carry out this offseason, according to NJ.com.

Jay Bruce went off in Game 1 of the Yankees–Indians ALDS with a homer and a double en route to a 4-0 Cleveland victory. NY (AL) had been unwilling to cover any of Bruce’s salary in a potential trade between the Mets and Yanks before his trade to the Indians.
It’s early, but starting pitching has been miserable across the postseason.
