Wally Backman To Manage Brooklyn Cyclones

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 manage the St. Lucie Mets.

Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post has confirned the news and says that the Mets will make an official announcement early next week.

Mike Silva of NYBD reported that the Mets will hold that press conference on Tuesday.

Here’s to hoping that a new clean slate does wonders for Wally.
