Meet the Mets

The biggest loss for the Mets this offseason may come in the scenario where the Phillies are the team with Joe Girardi in their dugout on Opening Day.

The Cubs and Padres may have come knocking for Carlos Beltran’s services, but the future hall of famer has his eyes on one team’s managerial opening: the Mets.

Some may view his inexperience as a big minus on his resume, Beltran is sure that with an experienced bench coach, he’ll be fine.

Around the National League East

The Phillies managerial interviews will include a bouquet of veteran names including Joe Girardi, Buck Showalter, and even Dusty Baker.

Proving that some good stories still exist, Ryan Zimmerman is living his best life as Washington cruises through the playoffs.

Around Major League Baseball

Carlos Correa’s 11th inning walkoff homer against J.A. Happ and the Yankees brought the Astros and Yankees to a 1-1 ALCS tie.

Much to the annoyance of Mike Francesa, a calf strain will limit Giancarlo Stanton’s appearances for the Yankees in the NLCS.

With his 184th strikeout, Justin Verlander slid into second place on the all time postseason strikeout leaderboard, behind only John Smoltz and his 199 strikeouts.

After being hit by a Michael Brantley foul ball, an Astros dugout security guard is in stable condition.

This Date in Mets History
