He believes that above anyone else, Bobby Valentine is the only man for the job. “Say they are the Mets 9-16 before the first week in May is over.  It is impossible to […]

As posted on MetsBlog, here is a recap of what Jerry Manuel had to say during his interview with Mike Francesa on WFAN.  The Mets didn’t do what they needed to do against Livan Hernandez last Sunday, regardless of how Johan Santana pitched, and that was very frustrating.

While Jerry Manuel ponders things like the Mets 2-5 start, John Maine’s spot in the rotation, and how they can eke out a win against the Rockies and Cardinals, the time has come for us to ponder life without Jerry Manuel.
