Manuel and Minaya Are Safe For Now
According to Andy Martino of the Daily News, Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya’s jobs are safe for now.
The Mets have lost six of seven games since the All-Star break, but all indications are that manager Jerry Manuel and general manager Omar Minaya are in no immediate danger of losing their jobs.
Minaya is making a scheduled trip to Los Angeles for this weekend’s series against the Dodgers, but the visit is routine. Either Minaya or one of his assistant GMs, John Ricco and Wayne Krivsky, accompanies the Mets on every trip.
With the July 31 trade deadline looming and the Mets struggling but alive in a weak National League wild card race, no leadership changes are planned. That could change if the Mets continue to lose, but no one is on the proverbial hot seat at this time.
It sounds like a good way to go for now, but if the team doesn’t turn this current dry streak around soon, things could start to develop quickly.
Another thing that could set the wheels in motion would be declining attendance at Citi Field when the team returns to Flushing next week.
