    Apple Citi Field

    They moved the fences in and David Wright — the guy considered to be most affected by Citi Field’s dimensions — signed a long term deal.

    Manny Machado

    Let’s go down the list: AL, catcher: Matt Wieters, Joe Mauer, Salvador Perez Mauer is still the AL’s best defensive catcher, but he played a mere 660 innings behind the plate this year, compared to 1,200 for Wieters and 1,115 for Perez.

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 6, Angels 5: They were up then down then bang! Jurickson Profar with the walkoff blast.

But it was a must-win game and the Rangers won. Indians 6, Twins 5: A win,…

    david wright mets getty

    There was some hope that David Wright would be ready to return from the disabled list Tuesday night for the start of a three-game series at Citi Field vs. the visiting Giants. But that is not going to happen.

  16. Terry Collins almost certain to be back in 2014

    Sep 2, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Terry Collins

    Terry Collins is technically a lame duck as the Mets’ skipper. His contract runs out at the end of the month and, given his 213-246 record at the helm, it’s not as if there is a rich history of success in New York compelling the Mets to extend him.  Nevertheless, Buster Olney reports that extend…

And even if it hadn’t beforehand, man, it would have after it got going. The Mets demolished the Nationals 11-0. Jenrry Mejia got the start for New York…
