MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

Although the Mets and Javier Báez had a rocky relationship at times, the ice has thawed and they remain mutually interested in a reunion for next season and beyond.

Travis d’Arnaud is headed back to the World Series with a different team but still has fond memories of his time with the Mets.

The Braves are in the World Series because they were able to overcome injuries to their stars which is a direct contrast to how the Mets managed their season.

Around the National League East

Charlie Morton will be on the mound for Game 1 of the Fall Classic for Atlanta opposite Framber Valdez for the Astros.

Andrew McCutchen could be a useful player for the Phillies if baseball adopts the universal DH next season.

Around Major League Baseball

The Cardinals are reportedly hiring 35-year-old Oliver Marmol as their next manager.

December 2 is the date to keep an eye on as it could be the day when there will be a work stoppage for the first time in twenty-six years.

The MVP is almost always awarded to the most valuable player on the winning team of the World Series, but in 1960 it was awarded to Yankees’ second baseman Bobby Richardson whose team went home on the losing side.

Lance McCullers will not pitch in the World Series for the Astros after suffering a forearm injury in the Division Series against the White Sox.

Kyle Schwarber was one of the heroes for the Red Sox during their run to the postseason, and he is open to returning to the team next year.
