Meet the Mets

After decades of looking inward, finding a replacement from the dreaded outward direction isn’t very easy for the Mets.

For at least one more year, the Mets have the 9th longest World Series drought in baseball, but what would it take to send them another spot up the list in 2022?

In big trade news, Taijuan Walker will exchange money for a big bag of candy at some point today.

Around the National League East

Adam Duvall hit a first inning grand slam, but ultimately the Astros clobbered and clawed their way back to a 9-5 victory, making it a 3-2 World Series heading back to Houston for the sixth and potentially seventh game.

In honor of Halloween, Eireann Dolan shared an adorable story involving Juan Soto, bags of candy, and a post-World Series flight back from Houston.

When you aren’t being deafened by chants and chops, the highlight of any Atlanta Braves game are the musical stylings of organist Matthew Kaminski.

Held back from victory for at least another day, the Braves remain a game away from their first World Series title in 26 years.

Around Major League Baseball

Former Red Sox player and Boston broadcasting legend Jerry Remy died at 68 after his fifth bout with lung cancer in the past twelve years.

Following the announcement of his passing, tributes poured in from current and former Red Sox players, members of the front office, team ownership, and his ultimate partner: Don Orsillo.

And, for old times’ sake, HEAH COMES THE PIZZER.

Zack Greinke recorded a pinch hit single last night in what will almost certainly be the final hit by a starting pitcher in major league history.

Though Halloween has passed, it is not too late to venture down the hall of the spookiest games and events in baseball history.

Off the field, it’s always a good time to read about the horrific goings-on in the halls and rooms of Milwaukee’s Pfister Hotel.

In the first LIDOM game of his two decades of professional baseball, Albert Pujols chugged his way to a walk off single.

Unsurprisingly, the people of Texas are not very fond of David Freese, even ten years later.

The Mets may be a horrible, miserable pile of secrets, but at least they didn’t tell the face of their franchise that their option won’t be picked up via email.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 2019, the Mets hired Carlos Beltran to be the 22nd manager in team history. During his tenure, the Mets would not lose a single game.
