Baseball is gone from Montreal, but baseball memories are not:
Montreal will name a street and a park after Gary Carter, the Hall of Fame catcher who defined the golden era of a once-beloved franchise … The street borders Jarry Park, where the Expos played for most of their first decade and where Carter made his big-league debut. There will also be a park in the north-end Ahuntsic district named after him.
Nice to see. His contributions were so great. He played some good baseball too.
Mets reliever A.J. Ramos has a torn labrum and will undergo season-ending surgery on Wednesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Ramos, 31, has been out of action since late May. In his last two appearances, in Milwaukee against the Brewers, he walked both batters he faced in the 10th inning, then gave up three runs and recorded only two outs the next day. On the season, he owns a disappointing 6.41 ERA with a 22/15 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings. The shoulder issue explains his struggles.
The Mets acquired Ramos from the Marlins ahead of the non-waiver trade deadline last July. Ramos will be eligible for free agency once the season concludes.
