Meet the Mets

The latest name to get added to the Mets’ managerial search is Twins’ bench coach Derek Shelton.

So who is Shelton and why would he be a good fit for this team?

With the Phillies firing Gabe Kapler, it adds another team the Mets have to compete with in their search for a new manager.

Pete Alonso was voted as the unanimous selection for Rookie of the Year by Baseball America.

Marlins’ third base coach Fredi Gonzalez is leaving the organization but Mel Stottlemyre Jr. and Trey Hillman are staying on as coaches.

Gabe Kapler was fired as Phillies skipper after two disappointing seasons at the helm.

Tyler Glasnow was ambushed by the Astros in the first inning and he might have been tipping his pitches.

Despite his obvious mismanagement against the Nationals, Dave Roberts will return as the Dodgers’ manager next season.

Padres pitcher Jacob Nix was arrested for criminal trespassing after he tried to sneak into a home through a doggie door.

Steve Sypa wrote about baseball in Brooklyn.

It’s no surprise who Mets fans are rooting against this postseason.
