Meet the Mets

Rumors surround both Sandy Alomar Jr. and Joe McEwing as being possible managerial candidates, but neither one has been contacted by the Mets yet.

Some former teammates believe McEwing would make a great Mets manager.

Brad Ausmus is just the latest name to be added to the mix of possible Terry Collins replacements.

Around the NL East

The Braves are interested in bringing Dayton Moore back to their front office, but some changes would need to be made before that happens.

The Phillies are one of the teams reportedly interested in Mike Redmond as a potential manager.

Max Scherzer will start Game 3 for the Nationals and he thinks he will be able to throw 100 pitches in the start.

Around the Majors

Both the Indians and Astros failed to close out their respective series.

David Price did some heavy lifting for the Red Sox and Rafael Devers added his name to a little bit of history in their win over the Astros.

Greg Bird’s home run helped keep the Yankees alive in their series against the Indians.

Trevor Bauer will be on the hill for the Indians in Game 4 against the Yankees.

The Rockies showed progress this season and have a nice group of pitchers to build around for the future.

A 2016 Cubs World Series ring is up for auction and could fetch the seller a nice payday.

This Date in Mets History

October 9 is a memorable date in Mets history.

In 1986, Bobby Ojeda pitched a complete game and helped the Mets beat Nolan Ryan and the Astros to even up their series 1-1.

In 1999, an unlikely hero in Todd Pratt ended the NLDS with one swing of the bat in the bottom of the tenth inning against the Diamondbacks.

It might seem like a lifetime ago, but just two years ago, in a game where the starters combined to strike out a 24 batters, Jacob deGrom outpitched Clayton Kershaw and the Mets had a 1-0 lead in their series against the Dodgers.
