Meet the Mets

MLB owners are set to vote on the Mets sale to Steve Cohen this Friday. He is set to be approved as there is currently only one known definite “no”.

How quickly Cohen then assumes power and can begin operations of the franchise depends on how quickly Bill de Blasio approves the transfer of the Mets’ lease.

George Springer’s deteriorating relationship with the Astros could prove to be beneficial for the Mets.

Around the National League East

The Marlins are interested in keeping reliever Brandon Kintzler next season.

Around Major League Baseball

The Dodgers are your 2020 World Series champions as they beat the Rays 3-1, in Game 6. After moving through the Dodgers lineup with ease, Blake Snell was pulled from the game in the 6th inning and it was all downhill from there for the Rays as their bullpen gave up three runs and could not muster up any more offense against the Dodgers.

Corey Seager was named the World Series MVP.

Kevin Cash defended his decision to take Blake Snell out of the game, saying he was trying to put the team in the best position to win.

The Rays lone run of the game came from a solo home run from none other than Randy Arozarena.

After the game ended, we found out Justin Turner tested positive for COVID-19, which is why he was removed from the game.

Ben Strauss wrote about Ben Reiter and how he reconsiders his book “Astroball”.

Is baseball ready for Alex Cora and A.J. Hinch to manage again?

Sean MacDonald has been to 766 sports stadiums, including Globe Life Field, the home of the World Series. He doesn’t give the brand new stadium a very high grade.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

Rich Resch looked at what it would like if the Mets could borrow a player from each of their NL East rivals.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 2015, the Mets played a World Series game in Kansas City that was entirely forgettable and resulted in them being down 2-0 to the Royals.
