MLB: World Series-Los Angeles Dodgers at Tampa Bay Rays Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

If Steve Cohen wants to make a big splash, it might be smart to do what the Dodgers did with Mookie Betts and trade for and extend a superstar player—in this case, Francisco Lindor.

Justin Turner continues to produce for the Dodgers, which simultaneously continues to remind the Mets how foolish they were for letting him get away.

Turner is just one of many Mets players who went on to find greater success after leaving the team.

Darryl Strawberry provided his thoughts on the Mets’ impending sale to Steve Cohen and a bunch of other topics in an interview with the New York Daily News.

Around the National League East

Impending free agent Didi Gregorius isn’t sure whether the Phillies will try to keep him.

Our sister SB Nation sites continue to conduct season reviews, as Talking Chop discussed Tommy Milone’s time with the Braves in 2020 while Fish Stripes looked at closer Brandon Kintzler’s production this year.

With Josh Harrison agreeing to a 2021 deal with the Nationals, Federal Baseball contemplated the value that the veteran player can be expected to provide for the club next season.

Around Major League Baseball

A wild back-and-forth game culminated in a crazy walk-off for the Rays to give them a dramatic 8-7 win to tie up the series at two games apiece.

Yesterday’s finish is up there with some of the most dramatic final plays in a World Series game in history.

One of many memorable moments from last night: Randy Arozarena set a record for most homers in a single postseason after hitting his ninth of the 2020 playoffs.

Regardless of whether the Rays come out on top this year, they look well-positioned to be a contender for years to come.

Former Astros executive and current Orioles general manager Mike Elias is under investigation for potential pension fraud.

Veteran Black players have a tradition of supporting the younger ones, and that tradition continued even amidst the pandemic this year.

Liam Hendricks of the Athletics and Devin Williams of the Brewers were named the top relievers of the 2020 season.

This Date in Mets History

While last night’s game was pretty dramatic, it still probably doesn’t quite match up to Game 6 of the 1986 World Series, which happened on this date thirty-four years ago.
