Meet the Mets

The Diamondbacks signed Eduardo Escobar to a new three-year deal.

It’s been more than 100 years since the Dodgers and Red Sox faced each other in a World Series. It was so long ago that the Dodgers were the Brooklyn Robins back then.

The Wall Street Journal says this World Series match up proves money still matters in baseball.

There’s a new documentary out about Chien-Ming Wang’s quest to return to major league baseball, and Ken Davidoff talked to Wang about the film.

David Capobianco looked back at Jacob deGrom’s dominant season.
