Meet the Mets

It’s not the cheeriest of futures to consider, but in the event that Michael Conforto doesn’t come back to Queens, there are certainly options to take his spot on the roster.

If pain is what you’re after, the oral history of the Mets run to game seven of the 2006 NLCS is just what you need on a Monday morning.

Even with a new owner and some fresh faces on the field, the New York Mets president job isn’t very appealing, apparently.

Around the National League East

For the second time in as many games during this NLCS, the Braves clawed their way back from every deficit and ultimately walked off against the Los Angeles Dodgers, sending the defending champs into a 2-0 hole.

Adorned with pearls and hitting postseason baseballs into restaurants, Joc Pederson truly is a bad bitch.

Between NLCS victories, Freddie Freeman found himself a fan in the stands, watching Freeman hit a homer to lead his team to victory. The only difference is that the homering Freeman in this scenario was his son, Charlie.

Obviously, he can’t participate, but Ronald Acuña Jr. is still as supportive as ever, watching each playoff game from the dugout with his teammates.

Going into his third consecutive season as the youngest player in the National League, Luis Garcia may finally have his starting spot with the 2022 Nationals.

The Good Phight looked back at Brandon Kintzler’s 2021 season that ALLEGEDLY went down the tubes after he received the COVID-19 vaccine and his body shut down.

Fish Stripes reviewed the season of a man who is certain to be a pain in the Mets’ ass at some point: Zach Thompson.

Around Major League Baseball

Rumor has it that Major League Baseball is considering a nationwide streaming service that would allow all fans in all locations to watch their favorite team’s games, blackouts be damned.

Beginning at the start of the 2022 season, Major League Baseball teams will be required to provide housing for their minor league players.

Three days after being fired by the Cardinals, Mike Shildt already has his first managerial interview lined up, with the Padres.

An uncomfortable neck kept Justin Turner out of the Dodgers’ postseason lineup for the first time since game four of the 2014 NLDS.

Starting off as “that guy traded for Mookie Betts”, Alex Verdugo has worked to receive MVP votes and become a fan-favorite in Boston.

Eduardo Rodriguez will start for Boston as the ALCS makes its way to Fenway Park for game three.

Whether you’re a gladiator in 180AD Rome or Dusty Baker and the Astros in 2021 Boston, a good dinner is the best preparation.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 2006, the Mets won Game six of the 2006 NLCS against reigning NL Cy Young Chris Carpenter and the Cardinals.
