Here’s a comprehensive list of managerial candidates as compiled by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. What’s interesting to me is the omission of Wally Backman and Chip Hale who seem to be the prime choices for Mets fans.  DRAWING SIGNIFICANT INTEREST Eric Wedge: The former Indians manager already has interviewed with the Cubs and Blue Jays.

For Mets, Patience Is Key

Patience is a virtue, everything happens for a reason, good things come to those who wait, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you have to look before you leap. Cliches aside, the Mets (and us fans) will have to be patient in finding out who will be running the show next year and hopefully […]

We interrupt your regularly scheduled day of blog reading to give you breaking news that’s already been broken. Omar Minaya has been relieved of his GM duties and Jerry Manuel’s option for the 2011 season was not picked up. Of course, this wasn’t even breaking news before it became official.  It was a foregone conclusion […]

So cross Larry Beinfest, Michael Hill and Dan Jennings of your Mets GM checklists, as the Marlins refused the Mets permission to speak to anyone they have under contract. Yawn. Three candidates down, 27 to go. Jon Heyman has been saying the Mets like Rick Hahn for almost a month, and now even the lowest level Mets sources […]

There was so much to digest between the press conference and the half-dozen or so interviews with the Wilpons on Monday. But after everything was all said and done, one thing Jeff Wilpon said really struck me as odd, and even 24 hours later, I can’t seem to shake it and I still find myself going back to it. […]

There Was No Hiding The Wilpon’s Discontent

I watched Fred and Jeff Wilpon squirm yesterday with embarrassment and pain. It was clear to me by their body language and tone of voice they felf genuine embarrassment and frustration of having to go through the firing and hiring process once again. They were under the glare of the spotlight not only in New […]

Admission is the first step to beating addiction, particularly when you’ve been living in denial for so long.  To that I have a big declaration to make here, and I wanted to share it with fellow Mets fans. I have come to the conclusion that 2006 was an accident. Hi Mets fans, my name is […]

They’re gone!  Yes, Omar Minaya is thankfully no longer the General Manager of the New York Mets.  Even better news is that Jerry “The Gangsta” Manuel has finally been fired and will no longer be managing the Mets and laughing after a loss. I know the beat writers will miss him but we’re finally free […]

This afternoon I watched an interview on SNY that was a gem. Kevin Burkhardt sat down and quietly spoke with Fred Wilpon about all that has been happening the past few weeks. About all the current Mets news – hirings, firings, etc. and the changes that will now be able to take place as the […]
