Meet the Mets

The Mets are showing that managerial experience is not the most important factor in their search after skipping over Joe Girardi, Buck Showalter, and Dusty Baker.

Former Met Dave Magadan is a fan of Tim Bogar.

Former manager Mickey Callaway will join Joe Maddon and the Angels as a pitching coach.

Marcus Stroman will serve as the honorary starter for today’s Suffolk County Marathon.

Around the National League East

The Nationals dropped Game Four of the World Series to the Astros 8-1. The series is now even at two games each.

Washington is back in survival mode after their latest loss.

Charlie Willis, a lifelong DC baseball fan and Nationals’ season ticket holder, got the opportunity to announce “Play Ball!” before Game Four of the World Series. Willis was born in 1924, when the Washington Senators won the only championship in DC baseball history.

Around Major League Baseball

Longtime MLB umpire Chuck Meriwether passed away yesterday. Commissioner Rob Manfred released a statement prior to last night’s game. He was 63.

Joel Sherman tries to guess what some of the top MLB free agents will earn this winter.

Some MLB players have noticed a difference in the baseballs from the regular season to the postseason.

Jose Urquidy became the third Mexican-born pitcher, and second rookie, to start a World Series game. Fernando Valenzuela was the first Mexican-born rookie to do so in 1981.

Yankees radio broadcaster Suzyn Waldman hasn’t “watched one second of this World Series” following the disgusting remarks made by former Astros assistant general manager Brandon Taubman towards three female reporters, and the subsequent response from the organization.

Aroldis Chapman of the Yankees and Josh Hader of the Brewers have been named 2019 Relievers of the Year.

Take a stroll down memory lane with the ten best World Series games from the past decade according to Sports Illustrated. We highly recommend skipping numbers ten and eight for maximum enjoyment.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Kenneth Lavin reviewed Luis Guillorme’s season, which featured his first career home run.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 1986, the Mets defeated the Red Sox 8-5 in Game Seven at Shea Stadium to take home the second championship in franchise history. The Mets erased an early 3-0 deficit with three runs in the sixth, and Ray Knight’s leadoff home run in the seventh put New York ahead for good.
