Meet the Mets

Bob Nightengale ran a report claiming the mayor has the power to veto the sale of the Mets to Steve Cohen. Deesha Thosar of the Daily News tore that report down.

With their extremely wealthy new owner the Mets could be in an envious position this offseason.

Marcus Stroman saw the Yankees rotation last season and thinks that they could use his talents.

Should the Mets part ways with their general manager, manager, or both, there will be vacancies from other clubs they will be in competition with when they start their search to fill those rolls.

Once upon a time there was a real possibility of the Mets trading for Ken Griffey Jr. How would the organization be different if that trade actually went through?

The Subway Series World Series is celebrating its 20th Anniversary. Relive that series if you dare.

The Endy Chavez catch is remembered fondly by Mets fans but it almost didn’t happen.

Around the National League East

With Marcell Ozuna having a career year in a shortened season, what could his next contract reasonably look like?

The Marlins have an option on Starling Marte but should they exercise it for the 2021 season?

The Phillies had a largely disappointing season and their poor defense just added to it.

Around Major League Baseball

With the help of two home runs by Brandon Lowe the Rays took Game 2 to even up the series.

Randy Arozarena picked up another hit which ties him with Derek Jeter for the most hits by a rookie in a single postseason.

Game 1 of the World Series had awful ratings, drawing record-low viewership.

The Rays are seemingly a bunch of disparate parts come together but it took a lot of brain power to build them into a winner and get them to where they are today.

It has been quite the fall from grace for the Cubs after winning the World Series four years ago. They are laying off over 100 employees and have no clear direction as an organization.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Chris McShane said goodbye to Mikkeller NYC.

This Date in Mets History

Mike Piazza and Roger Clemens had their infamous run in on this date in 2000. After Piazza broke his bat, Clemens picked up the sheared off piece of wood and flung it in the catcher’s direction. A stand off ensued but cooler heads eventually prevailed.
