Your Monday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.
Meet the Mets
As the postseason moves along, it leaves plenty of time to consider how the Mets should approach the upcoming Michael Conforto Saga.
Much like Conforto, the future of Marcus Stroman with the New York Mets remains up in the air, for now.
Around the National League East
One half of the pair of NLDS’s returns from a new home as the Brewers take on the Braves in Atlanta at 1:00pm ET on TBS.
As the NLDS comes back to Atlanta, the absence of the late Henry Aaron is on the minds of all in and around the Braves.
Ron Washington, the Atlanta Braves’ third base coach, is said to be under consideration for the vacant Padres manager role.
Coming off of the best season of his already impressive career, it only makes sense to start thinking about a potential Juan Soto extension.
Though they weren’t up for very long, Kiebert Ruiz and Josiah Gray, the pair of 23-year-olds acquired by Washington in the Trea Turner-Max Scherzer trade, made an impression.
Around Major League Baseball
After two games worth of rolling over against the Astros, the White Sox exploded for 12 runs in a 12-6 victory, sending the series to at least a fourth game, tonight.
Thirteen innings, five hours, one confusing automatic double and a walkoff home run from Christian Vazquez later, the Boston Red Sox took a 2-1 series lead against Tampa Bay following their 6-4 win at Fenway.
If that wild and wacky double still has you scratching your head, maybe the explanation of the umpires will help…or maybe it won’t, I don’t know.
The other half of the NLDS pair also returns tomorrow, this edition at 9:30ET on TBS as the Giants take on the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine.
On Tampa’s day off this past Saturday, manager Kevin Cash babysat for reliever David Robertson so he and his wife could go on a nice dinner date.
Naturally, the Brewers’ pitchers and hitters are an integral part of their playoff run, but Bob Uecker’s presence cannot be discounted.
