According to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com, sources have told him that Wally Backman, who was a finalist for the Mets managers job, is expected to be named the manager of the Binghamton Mets.
After Terry Collins was named manager, Wally Backman told The Bergen Record that he was “disappointed and devastated” that he wasn’t named manager.
With this move, former Met Tim Teufel is now expected to be named manager of the Buffalo Bisons, according to Rubin.
I think its great that Wally Backman decided to stay with the Mets organization. The Mets need someone with Wally’s experience and personality.
Hopefully he helps make the B-Mets a winning baseball team next season and after that, who knows…
