Sean Doolittle with the final word on players taking paternity leave during the postseason: "If your reaction to someone having a baby is anything other than, 'Congratulations, I hope everybody is healthy,' you're an a------."

“I’ve said before it was a goal to win one, but to think about winning two is honestly kind of crazy to me. It would be an honor.” Jacob deGrom's season was, once again, one big superlative:

No surprise here, but quality control coach Luis Rojas -- well liked by players -- is on the Mets' list of managerial interviewees. Also on that list: Joe Girardi, Carlos Beltrán, Mike Bell and Derek Shelton, plus others we don't know about. It's a big list.

Coming off a season that will surely end with top-three NL MVP standing, Anthony Rendon is slashing .375/.469/.625 in the playoffs. Dude is going to get paid. (And no, not by the Mets, who don't appear to have the budget nor the roster flexibility to land him.)

@richmacleod  Perhaps. But with finite dollars to spend, spending them on an infielder instead of a pitcher seems like a misappropriation of resources.

Since scoring 13 runs in the first three innings of NLDS Game 5, the Cardinals have gone 18 consecutive scoreless innings. In the postseason. With it all on the line. In the last 17 of those innings, they have one hit.

The Nationals have won the pennant. There is a man in a bald eagle suit waving a flag at second base.


BREAKING: The Mets have requested that Matt Harvey agree to a minor league assignment. He refused to accept, and will be DFA'd.

Jacob deGrom's season is officially in the books. There's no longer reason to bring him back on short rest. His final start: 8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 10 K. His season: 217 IP, 1.70 ERA, 269 K. It was, by any stretch, one of the best seasons by a pitcher in modern MLB history.

Dee Gordon batted right-handed for one pitch in tribute to Jose Fernandez. Then he hit a leadoff homer. Unbelievable. Unreal. Incredible.

Many consider Luis Guillorme the best defender in the Mets' entire farm system. Need proof? He just. Did. This.

Here are Noah Syndergaard's velocities in a perfect first inning: 100 mph 100 mph 100 mph 100 mph 90 mph 100 mph 97 mph 91 mph 101 mph 101 mph 92 mph It's his first outing of the year.

And Pete Alonso knew it was gone. Here's his record-breaking 53rd home run and celebration:

Happy Bobby Bonilla Day, everyone. The Mets will pay him another $1.19 million today and every July 1 through 2035.

Tim Tebow hit a walk-off home run tonight for Class A St. Lucie. He has an active 11-game hitting streak there, and is batting .327. #Mets
