Some weird happenings are taking place in Metsville in the last few days. First, Jeff Wilpon and John Ricco make an unexpected stop in Atlanta on Monday to watch the Mets lose to the Bravos. It prompts Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, to suggest a potential shakeup was in the works. “With just over a month remaining in the season, the Mets remain far from playoff contention, spawning the notion that a personnel shakeup is on the horizon.” While […]
All year long we’ve been told that the Mets are financially in good health. It’s been the mantra ever since the name Bernard Madoff made headline news with his Ponzi scheme and swept the Wilpon family and Sterling Enterprises on board his swarmy carpet ride; not to mention all the livelihoods he destroyed along the way. The man surely has a place in hell perfectly decorated waiting for his arrival one day. Needless to say […]
Readers of this site are already familiar with Mets prospect Cory Vaughn who has been tearing it up in his first season as a professional playing for the Brooklyn Cyclones. Vaughn is the son of notable power hitter Greg Vaughn, and was drafted by the New York Mets in the fourth round, out of San Diego State University. He signed with the Mets a couple of weeks later and then reported to Brooklyn and homered in his first game. He’s […]
It looks like Wally Backman will indeed be managing the Brooklyn Cyclones in 2010. It had already been reported three weeks ago by Adam Rubin, that Backman would be managing one of the Single-A teams for the Mets, but which one had not yet been determined. Yesterday, Dora Licastri, long time friend of MMO, and Port St. Lucie native, reported on her Facebook Mets Rumor Mill that Wally Backman would manage the Brooklyn Cyclones and Edgar Alfonzo would […]
I really don’t understand what the big fuss is about bringing Wally Backman to the Mets, but apparently according to Jon Heyman of SI.com, the Mets will offer Backman a job on one of their minor league teams, possibly at Class-AA Binghamton where there is a managerial vacancy. The Mets are leaning toward giving 1986 hero Wally Backman a second chance. Backman, a fiery leader from that championship 1986 team, recently called for a job […]
You may have heard over the weekend that Wally Backman was fired from his job as manager of the Joliet Jack Hammers of the Northern League. I love Wally, he was a great Met, but I’m not surprised he was let go. What is surprising though, is that some Mets fans are considering and hoping that the Mets hire Backman to replace Tony Bernazard as Vice President in charge of Player Development or Jerry Manuel […]
