Guess who’s back? For those of you who don’t know me, I am just as much a Jets fan as I am a Mets fan. For those of you that don’t follow Jets football, the Jets have been experiencing a period of success in the last two years or so. The major factor in the Jets success is their administration – Mike Tannenbaum and their new head coach, Rex Ryan. Mike Tannenbaum, like Sandy Alderson, […]
Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported today that the managerial “search” is more of a formality: I guess Hale, in particular, has a chance to throw a Hail Mary and get the job. But this is as close to a rigged event as possible with Collins as the favorite and Melvin as a very in-the-competition second choice. If this is in fact the situation, then why is it taking so long to declare […]
I won’t sugar coat things for you (as if you’ve ever worried about the Coop doing that)…I LOVE Wally Backman. LOVE HIM. When My Summer Family was still in operation, I wrote a piece called “Backman is the Answer. What was the Question?“ This detailed why I was upset that the Mets didn’t at least interview him in 2004, before they went on a comedy of errors hiring Willie Randolph to his muddled firing to […]
Does it seem to you, as it does to me that in many respects the job Sandy Alderson has is about as contentious and uphill as Chris Christie – Governor of New Jersey? No matter your political persuasion – if you have one at all – one has to admit that both men have more than their hands full over the next few years. Don’t get me wrong I’m not comparing the intricacies and obvious […]
In the next few weeks Sandy Alderson and the Wilpons will be making a crucial decision and the individual they choose to take the reigns of the 2011 Mets faces an uphill battle. From overpaid/under-performing stars to players coming off injuries to a closer with a police record to a front office in disarray to an incompetent medical staff, the Mets resemble a Seinfeld episode more then a major league team. As Sandy, Fred and […]
The Mets have added one more manager to their first round of interviews. According to David Lennon of Newsday, the Mets will interview Jose Oquendo on Monday in Orlando. Updated 1:15 PM According to Adam Rubin, Tim Teufel will not be interviewed for the Mets manager position as first thought. When Sandy Alderson mentioned he may add one or two final candidates to the managerial interview mix, he apparently was not speaking about Tim Teufel. […]
While everyone celebrates that Sandy Alderson is the new GM and that he said all the right things the Mets still need a manager. Unfortunately for us it looks like the Mets are going to be cheap with who they hire. Also Alderson doesn’t like spending money so that means Bobby Valentine won’t be the new manager. Hopefully it won’ t be Bob Melvin since that will just be another Jerry with less personality. I […]
We’ve spent the last week talking about who will be our next manager and GM. As Sandy Alderson recently moved to the top of the GM list, most Mets fans are clamoring for either Wally Backman or Bobby Valentine to take over as skipper. My question is: Why not both? It seems improbable, almost impossible, but it makes sense. Bobby can be our next GM. Wally can be our next manager. Valentine had been considered for […]
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 of these two losers. Unfortunately this should have happened years ago but better late than never I suppose. I watched the […]
