Tough loss on a cold night, Pete Mackanin said after his second-to-last game as Phillies manager. The Phillies late-season success they dropped to 15-13 in September has come thanks to plenty of help from Morgan.

Sandy Alderson ‘disappointed’ in recent anonymous comments

Mets GM Sandy Alderson on Saturday expressed his disappointment over the recent anonymous comments regarding Terry Collins and the team's the front office in what he said was an "unfair" article by Marc Carig of Newsday. Multiple sources told Carig that Collins had a poor relationship with many players and ignored directives from the front office. Carig also reported, citing sources, that the Mets' front office was prevented from making a change at manager. Alderson ripped those who made the anonymous claims and pushed back against much of it, saying he is "totally happy" with his relationship with Mets' ownership. "If I knew who it was, they would be terminated," Alderson said. The Mets' GM

Game 161: Mets at Phillies, 7:05 p.m

Jacob deGrom carried the burden this season of being the most valuable player on his team by far, and is the closest thing the Mets have to a sure bet going into 2018. Though some of his stats took a hit in a season that was strange for pitching in general, he was out there every five days, amassing 200 innings, 15 wins, and showing the consistency that has made him the centerpiece of the team. Despite his relatively high ERA of 3.53 (still significantly better than most of the league), deGrom did some of the best pitching of his professional career this season.

Report: Robin Ventura and Kevin Long are early favorites for Mets’ managerial position

Mets’ manager Terry Collins hasn’t been ousted from his position just yet, but there’s plenty of reason to think the club will be courting other candidates when his contract expires this offseason. Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the search for a replacement is expected to last into November, with former White Sox’ skipper Robin Ventura and current hitting coach Kevin Long as early favorites for the role. Ventura, 50, hasn’t seen the inside of the Mets’ home dugout since he last suited up for them in 2001.

Jacob deGrom was largely dominant for Mets in 2017

Jacob deGrom carried the burden this season of being the most valuable player on his team by far, and is the closest thing the Mets have to a sure bet going into 2018. Though some of his stats took a hit in a season that was strange for pitching in general, he was out there every five days, amassing 200 innings, 15 wins, and showing the consistency that has made him the centerpiece of the team. Despite his relatively high ERA of 3.53 (still significantly better than most of the league), deGrom did some of the best pitching of his professional career this season. He struck out a dazzling 239 batters -- fifth-most in baseball, and did so at a rate of nearly 11 batters per 9 innings, by far a career-best

Collins says front office never took issue with his bullpen usage

Mets manager Terry Collins responded on Friday to a report that he ignored directives from the front office regarding how he used the bullpen. "No," Collins said when asked if he ever heard from the front office about issues with his bullpen usage. "Time to pile on," he added. Collins also bristled at the notion that misuse by him led to Jeurys Familia's shoulder surgery. "It's part of the job," Collins said about the overall criticism. "You sit here, you make decisions that you think are in the best interest -- there are certainly a lot of factors involved. We don't send anybody out to hurt anybody. Never have, never will. There's players, the training staff, coaches all have inputs and you

Phillies get another look at Alvarez vs. Mets

Even though Pete Mackanin and Terry Collins are set to move on from their respective clubs following the conclusion of their weekend series, both managers are still preparing their teams for the future with every move they make. On Saturday, the Phillies will get another look at former All-Star Henderson Alvarez (0-1, 3.60 ERA) in his return from a shoulder injury. With spots noticeably up for grabs in the Phillies' starting rotation next spring, Alvarez is a name that general manager Matt Klentak will be keeping an eye on, especially Saturday.
