Meet the Mets

The Mets are having trouble finding people who will agree to interview with them, and it could be stemming from the way the organization is currently structured.

Other teams are in the process of hiring new mangers and two names associated with the Mets have popped up. Bench coach Gary DiSarcina is on the list of 40 names the Rangers have compiled as they search for a new manager, and if Mickey Callaway were to lose his job the Twins would be interested in taking him on as skipper.

Around the National League East

Talking Chop’s latest podcast discusses the NLDS and the future of the team.

The Marlins hired former Red Sox assistant Adrian Lorenzo as a special assistant in baseball operations and scouting.

With the Nationals’ catching situation in flux, Spencer Kieboom could win the backup spot next season.

Around Major League Baseball

The Red Sox evened up the series against the Astros with a win, but their Game 1 starter was admitted to the hospital with a stomach illness.

Gerrit Cole struggled a bit on the mound for Houston and gave up five runs for the first time in 2018.

David Price did not get through the five innings necessary to quality for the win so he remains winless in the postseason.

When the series heads to Houston, the Astros have lined up Dallas Keuchel and Charlie Morton as the Game 3 and Game 4 starters.

Paul Goldschmidt could be on the trading block for the Diamondbacks, and the Yankees could be a fit for the first baseman.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Mickey Callaway had an uneven first year as Mets’ skipper.

This Date in Mets History

Led by a gutsy performance by Jacob deGrom and the heads up baserunning by Daniel Murphy, the Mets took down Zack Greinke and the Dodgers to move on the the NLCS in 2015.

The 1986 Mets also played a memorable game on this date. They were down late in Game 6 against Houston, when a rally in the ninth tied the game. They finally went ahead in the sixteenth inning and despite a Houston rally in the bottom of the inning, they held on for the victory and were headed to the World Series.
