Shin-Soo Choo: Could he be a target for the Mets this winter? In a recent interview with Matthew Cerrone of MetsBlog, ESPN’s Buster Olney talked about the free agent market, specifically how the Mets will have to approach the offseason in order to land some of the best players on the market: For example, take Shin-Soo Choo, who is a free agent this fall.

Wheeler Lasts Only Four Innings, Gives Up Five Runs

Shorter Subway Series Reduces The Spotlight On Woeful Mets Season

Mike Kerwick of The Record, says it’s probably a good thing for the Mets that the Subway Series has been shortened from six games to four this season because it “brings glare” to how bad they are.
