Meet the Mets
There were some bright spots in the Mets’ bullpen this season, but there is definitely room for improvement.
Around the National League East
After being hurt for so much of his career, Travis d’Arnaud is finally shining on the big stage for Atlanta.
Around Major League Baseball
The Dodgers defeated the Padres in an exciting game that featured a game-saving catch by Cody Bellinger. Bellinger robbed Fernando Tatis Jr. of a go-head home run but things got heated when Manny Machado did not like Brusdar Graterol’s celebration of the play.
Cleveland manager Terry Francona battled health issues during the 2020 season that made him miss some time with the team, but he hopes to return in 2021.
Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue
Amazin’ Avenue is launching a book club and the first book read will be The Captain: a memoir by David Wright and Anthony DiComo.
This Date in Mets History
