Meet the Mets

The Mets are starting to round out the staff that will be surrounding manager Mickey Callaway. Kevin Long will not be returning as hitting coach and Pat Roessler will receive a promotion to take his place. Another crucial vacancy has been filled, as Dave Eiland will be the team’s pitching coach serving under Callaway.

Rickey Bones will return as the the bullpen coach, but Tom Goodwin will be moving on from being the team’s first base coach.

Keith Hernandez appeared to make an insensitive joke on the pregame show before Game 7.

Around the National League East

The Braves’ scandal could get a whole lot uglier as disgraced former GM John Coppolella and former special assistant Gordon Blakeley are planning on suing the ball club.

Brandon Kintzler helped solidify a shaky Nationals’ bullpen in 2017, but is there a place for him on the 2018 roster?

Around Major League Baseball

The Houston Astros won the World Series for the first time in their history. George Springer won the MVP award for Houston after setting new records in the series.

During the celebration, Carlos Correa surprised his girlfriend when he proposed to her on the field.

The Dodgers are left to wonder what could have been if Clayton Kershaw had gotten the start over Yu Darvish.

Los Angeles had plenty of baserunners in Game 7 but they just couldn’t come up with the big hit when they needed it most.

Tony La Russa is joining the Red Sox’s front office as an adviser.

There is currently a holdup that might prevent Japanese superstar Shoehei Otani from joining Major League Baseball next year.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

AJ Ramos was just ok after he joined the Mets last season.

Aaron Yorke thought Jay Bruce was good but not good enough to make up for all the other issues happening with the team.

Aaron also wrote about the hiring of Dave Eiland.

Brian Salvatore covered Pat Roessler’s promotion.

This Date in Mets History

Three Mets pitchers were good enough to garner Cy Young votes in 1976, but Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman, and Jon Matlack all fell short of taking home the award.
