Meet the Mets

The Mets search for the next president of baseball operations dwindled with Theo Epstein reportedly out of the running for the job.

The organization still has options for the position but they could be facing some hurdles with their top candidates.

Whoever does get the job will have a handful when taking over especially when it comes to next year’s roster.

The 2021 season was a disaster on every level for both the fans and the players.

Not many Mets got good grades for their disappointing season.

Around the National League East

The Braves could have their hands full against the Brewers’ defense when the NLDS gets underway.

Kim Ng had a tough first year as the Marlins’ general manager.

With Alcides Escobar extended, how will the Nationals manage the rest of their offseason?

Around Major League Baseball

Chris Taylor walked it off for the Dodgers to defeat the Cardinals for the Wild Card and move on to the NLDS to face the Giants.

After missing the playoffs in what was a promising season, the Padres fired manager Jayce Tingler.

Matt Vasgersian is moving on from calling Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN with Alex Rodriguez.

Major League Baseball will be requiring all players in the minor leagues to be vaccinated against COVID-19 for the 2022 season.

The Yankees exited early from the playoffs yet again and while they are a good team they are far from being a great one.

A man who has been on the run from U.S. Marshals for twenty-three years was possibly spotted behind home plate at a Dodgers game.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

On episode 105 of A Pod of Their Own the Mets’ report card had a lot of “needs improvement” marked down.

Allison McCague’s final pitcher meter of the season ended with a few players on the upswing.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 2006, the Mets sent the Dodgers home after finishing off a sweep in the NLDS.
