Prospectus Today: A Wagnerian Ovation?

The Mets, on the brink of being out of it, have the most attractive player on the August trade market, and a reasonable path to trading him.

Sunday night complicated things, a little. One can never talk about what the Mets should do without talking about the disconnect between that and what the Mets will do, and the gulf between those two things grows out of both the bizarre ownership situation and the even more bizarre fan culture that surrounds the team. Thus, when Yoenis Cespedes cracked a game-winning, two-run homer to beat the Giants on national TV and bring the Mets back to .500 Sunday night, he made it excruciatingly hard for the Mets to consider trading him. Still, if we can (hypothetically) bridge the gap between what is and what ought to be for a moment, the fact is that they ought to explore it.

The Mets send Thor to the hill aiming to claw their way back into the Fall Classic.

The Royals are two wins away from not being forced to settle for second place in back-to-back years. On to the always critical Game Three—hmm, perhaps every game in the postseason is critical, huh?

With their backs against the wall, will the Cubs find a way to stop the Mets--the Mets!--from stealing wild on them?

It's nearly five years since the Mets brought in Sandy Alderson. Here's a look back

Nearly five years ago, the Mets hired Sandy Alderson to replace the increasingly unpopular Omar Minaya. With the Mets now two wins away from making their first World Series in 15 years, let's take a look back at the move when it was made. This article originally ran on November 4, 2010.

Last week, the Mets took a bold step away from four years of ever-increasing disappointment and organizational chaos by hiring Sandy Alderson to succeed Omar Minaya as their general manager. The soon-to-be-63-year-old Alderson, who spent 15 years as the GM of the Oakland Athletics, was by far the most experienced candidate in a field which also included former Diamondbacks GM Josh Byrnes, former Royals GM Allard Baird, White Sox assistant GM Rick Hahn, Dodgers assistant GM Logan White, and Blue Jays special assistant Dana Brown. Perhaps just as importantly, Alderson is the first Mets GM to ascend to the post from outside the organization since Frank Cashen in 1980. He is a fresh start for an organization in desperate need of one.

Weary aces square off with Jake Arrieta and the Cubs aiming to deny Noah Syndergaard and the Mets a 2-0 series lead.

After an series opener in which New York’s Dark Knight pitched his way back into Gotham’s good graces with 7 ⅔ strong innings against Chicago, the Cubs will counter with an ace of their own in Jake Arrieta. Toeing the rubber for the home team in the Big Apple? None other than Marvel’s answer to DC’s Batman: the young god Thor, bearing a hammer of a fastball and the locks of an angel.

It's the hair versus the brain for a date with the Cubs.

Game 5. deGrom. Greinke. This pretty much sells itself. But if that doesn't do it for you, perhaps Yoenis Cespedes may fire back in his Magic/Bird batflip toss competition with Jose Bautista.

The playoffs, and a new villain, return to Queens and the Mets greet both with an offensive outburst.

The last home playoff game the New York Mets played ended with a curveball, and 56,000 morose fans streaming out of Shea Stadium. Nine years later they didn't even have to wait for their team's blowout 13-7 win for a bit of catharsis. It came as soon as public address announcer Alex Anthony began to introduce the Los Angeles Dodgers. Loud boos rained down from all corners of Citi Field. The training staff, up first, got the first wave of the gathering storm. The boos continued to rain down through all the Dodgers bench players, most of whom seemed amused. Zack Greinke even gave a little wave. Then came Chase Utley, and, well...

The Dodgers and Cardinals fight for their playoff lives on the road.

After a Game Three in which the Cubs hit six home runs---beating the Cardinals 8-6, and setting a major-league record for home runs in a postseason game in the process---they’ll be right back at it this afternoon as they try to punch their ticket to the NLCS for the first time since 2003.

Come for your Jake Arrieta fix, stay for the emerging drama between the Dodgers and Mets.

With the series knotted at one, the Cubs bring their ace to the mound as the Cardinals counter with an arm who’s struggled against the North Siders’ lineup of late.
