Meet the Mets

The Mets face a big decision in impending free agent Javy Báez.

Deesha Thosar looks at how the $18.4 million qualifying offer will impact the Mets’ free agents such as Michael Conforto and Noah Syndergaard.

After Jacob deGrom got off to a historic start to the season, it was reliever Aaron Loup who ended up having a historic 2021 campaign.

Josh Byrnes, a senior VP for the Dodgers, is one of the names the Mets have discussed for their President of Baseball Operations position according to Buster Olney.

Around the National League East

Thanks to a go-ahead solo home run from Freddie Freeman in the 8th inning, the Braves defeated the Brewers 5-4 and advanced to the NLCS.

Prior to the game, Jorge Soler tested positive for COVID-19 and was no longer on the Braves’ NLDS roster.

Entering the offseason, the Nationals are facing numerous questions in regards to their pitching staff and who will play various positions in the field.

Around Major League Baseball

The Dodgers beat the Giants 7-2, forcing a winner-take-all Game 5 back in San Francisco.

For the fifth straight season, the Astros will be playing in the ALCS, as they defeated the White Sox in Game 4 of the ALDS.

MLB’s qualifying offer this winter is set to be $18.4 million, down from $18.9 million last year.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone is likely to return to the team in the same role next season.

Despite bowing out in the ALDS, the 2021 Rays showed that they have a bright future.
