Mets Manuel Likely To Return

The word is there could be an announcement as early as Tuesday that Jerry Manuel will be signed to a contract to continue as the Mets manager. I have no problem with that. He had a .591 winning percentage over 93 games this season, a sizable sample. Over a full season that translates to 96 wins. You can’t beat that.

That said, I’m extremely disappointed that the Mets got to the precipise again and couldn’t make it over the top. And that’s with Manuel at the helm. He did take over a team that was dead and gave them some life. So Manuel started out pretty deep in the hole. I don’t consider injuries as a factor for the Mets this season because every team has injuries.

If it was my decision, I’d do some due diligence to see if Keith Hernandez was willing to take the managerial job. If not, I’d work on signing Jerry Manuel to a two or three year deal.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.

  1. I liked the way the Met’s fought back. But, the September Met’s looked an awful lot like the April/May/June Mets.
    I wouldn’t mind seeing Keith at the helm. Hopefully they will do their homework on some other candidates.

  2. I wasnt as upset by this year as last year. there was no realistic way we should have been expected to win once Wagner and Maine went down. especially Wagner. We all know if he were there we surely would have had at least the 2 games we needed to win to get in.

  3. Hey, everyone has injuries. Wagner had blown seven saves before he got hurt. So he wasn’t setting the world on fire as the closer anyway. He’s no K-Rod.

    Can we bring back Art Howe?
