2009/2010 – Years of the Gangsta

Jon Heyman of SI.com reports that Jerry Manuel has agreed on a two year contract and a team option for the third. The details of the deal has not been made public yet, so stay tuned for more.

This news comes a few days after Omar Minaya says he will probably pick up the option for Carlos Delgado.

UPDATE: FOX Sports confirms…

FOXsports.com is reporting that Jerry Manuel will remain New York Mets  manager with a two-year deal that includes a club option for a third season.

News of the deal comes one day after GM Omar Minaya was given a three-year contract extension.

Manuel went 55-38 after taking over for Willie Randolph on June 16, but the Mets went 6-9 in their final 15 games to fall one game short of the playoffs again.

A 4-2 loss to the Marlins on Shea Stadium’s final day kept the Mets from a one-game wild-card playoff against the Brewers.
