Mets Joint Chiefs Of Staff

An article by posted on February 6, 2009

Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times is reporting that former Mets catcher Mike DiFelice, has agreed to manage the Kingsport Mets for the 2009 season.

That wraps things up as far as managers go for the entire Mets organization.

New York Mets: Jerry Manuel
Buffalo (AAA): Ken Oberkfell
Binghamton (AA): Mako Oliveras
St. Lucie (Hi-A): Tim Teufel
Savannah (Lo-A): Edgar Alfonzo
Brooklyn (short season): Pedro Lopez
Kingsport (rookie): Mike DiFelice
Gulf Coast League (rookie): Julio Franco

Nice to see so many former Mets players in the group.

I always knew Julio Franco would someday turn to managing. Albeit, about five years too late.
