Meet the Mets
The organization is planning on bringing in Joe Girardi, Carlos Beltran and Mike Bell for in-person interviews as their search for a new manager begins to take shape.
Girardi’s former boss, Brian Cashman, gave him a ringing endorsement for the job in a recent interview.
No word yet on if Dusty Baker will get an interview, but he certainly seems to be what the Mets are looking for in their new skipper.
Salary arbitration projections are out and a few Mets are due for some nice pay raises.
Around the National League East
The Braves were absolutely embarrassed by the Cardinals in an elimination game of the NLDS. They were down 10-0 after the first inning and it was pretty much over from there. The team still had a good year but they need to figure out how to build upon this season. One area about their future is clear. They will be without Brian McCann who announced he is retiring.
The Braves made a half-hearted attempt to do the right thing before the game and removed the foam tomahawk giveaways from the stadium but the Tomahawk Chop was still played during the game.
