So the Mets are going to do it.
They are going to hand the keys to one of the most expensive rosters in baseball and what SHOULD be one of the marquee franchises in the game to a guy who couldn’t handle the baseball pressure cookers that are Houston and Anaheim.
Now you are going to put him in the New York media market who want to run managers out of town on a rail AFTER they win a World Series?
The Mets are giving a hot head manager with a 24/7 sports media hovering over Queens waiting for him to say something stupid?
This is a catastrophe waiting to happen.
If I am Bob Melvin, Wally Backman or even Bobby Valentine for that matter… I’d have my resumes ready. There might be an opening in APRIL!
By the way, I am saying this is a bad move NOW and I said it was a bad move 15 days ago when I couldn’t believe he was in the running.
No second guess here.
So Terry Collins, who had basically a players revolt on his hands in Anaheim, gets a third chance.
Chris Chambliss? He can’t get a first chance.
