World Series - Houston Astros v Los Angeles Dodgers - Game Two

Meet The Mets

Kevin Long is not likely to return as Mets hitting coach and might be in the running for D.C.’s new hitting coach.

With the Mets looking to re-tool, if not rebuild, this off-season, Kristie Ackert with the Daily News highlights the need for the team to bolster their outfield depth.

After clearing Nori Aoki from their roster, the Mets are expected to make decisions on the contracts of Asdrubal Cabrera and Jerry Blevins once the World Series is over.

It would appear that Dick Scott’s tenure as bench coach is over, so Mickey Callaway will be needing a new one. Abby Mastracco with profiles seven possible replacements.

Around Major League Baseball

The Dodgers beat the Astros in a low-scoring Game 6 last night to force the best game in sports: Game 7 of the World Series.

It’s been one of the most home run happy World Series in recent memory, and many players on either team, notably Justin Verlander, think the ball has something to do with it. Ben Lindbergh says all of the issues with the baseball this year are a PR issue that MLB needs to fix.

If the balls are indeed juiced, the Astros hypothetically stand to gain more from it.
