On Wally: There’s no way Jerry Manuel will survive after this season. Whoever replaces him will have to be marketed to a disgruntled and discouraged fan base. The one guy who will work and won’t break the bank, and who has won at his level, but hasn’t managed on the major league level is Wally […]

In Defense of Minaya?

An article by posted on August 20, 2010 0 Comments

In yesterday’s New York Times, Tyler Kepner, who once was that paper’s Mets beat reporter, writes a speculative and thought-provoking piece about the WIlpons either canning or retaining Minaya. Basically, their choice at season’s end will be telling. Wilpon has said little about Minaya and Manuel, and at this point he seems likely to wait […]
