Top candidates Steve Cohen and the Mets should pursue to lead baseball operations

The Athletic

The Mets’ top priority this offseason must be to hire a new leader of baseball operations, and owner Steve Cohen must be prepared to make whomever he appoints the highest-paid executive in Major League Baseball history. In my view, he should pursue three candidates: Theo Epstein, Erik Neander and Derek Falvey. Landing a top candidate will be key if Cohen truly wants world championship-caliber teams on a perennial basis.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. puts Guerrero’s in rare dad-son club

MLB.com

Sept 6: Blue Jays 8, Yankees 0 — Guerreros join Fielders
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. continues to make history with his breakout 2021 season, and the 22-year-old star launched his 40th home run of the season on Monday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Not only did Guerrero become the youngest Blue Jays hitter to 40 homers and one of just 10 in franchise history, but he and his father are now one of just two father-son duos to hit 40 home runs, joining Prince Fielder and Cecil Fielder. Vlad Sr. hit 42 home runs when he was 24 with the Montreal Expos and reached the 40-homer plateau once more the next season, totaling 449 in his Hall of Fame career. Vlad Jr. has a long way to go, but he is now third in the Majors in home runs this season behind Salvador Perez (41) and Shohei Ohtani (43).
