Meet the Mets
The Mets officially parted ways with acting general manager Zack Scott, two months and one day after he was charged with DWI after police offers found him asleep behind the wheel early in the morning. Scott had been on administrative leave while awaiting his trial on December 8. Steve Cohen and Sandy Alderson will add general manager to the list of positions they need to fill.
The Mets may have to face a tough reality in order to keep Jacob deGrom healthy.
One of Cohen’s tweet was referenced in a class action bid by minor leaguers to get back pay from MLB.

This Date in Mets History
In the wee hours of the morning on November 2—about 30 minutes after midnight to be exact—the Mets surrendered five runs to the Royals in the 12th inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series. The result was a 7-2 defeat, as the Mets dropped the series in five games. They have yet to return to the Fall Classic and have only appeared in one postseason game since that loss.
