This has been a hot rumor for awhile but now our man on the inside, Adam Rubin has put it out there that Asst’ GM John RiccoÂ looks to be the next man to run the Mets as it looks like Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel as well as the coaching staff are as good as gone too.
Ricco is the new breed of GM who has a grasp on stats andÂ can speak in public without stumbling.Â No offense to Omar but it looks like Jeffey was as embarrassed by Omar’ public speaking as much as we was that Tony B was running wild.
Read the article and see if you get the same feeling I get that the SkillÂ Sets are strapped for dough and will use theÂ $30 mil to pay off playersÂ and Omar and Manuel and not on free agents.
I feel bas for Jerry Manuel as he does not deserve to get fired but there needs to be a purge, a cleansing if you will of the organization and unfortunately ManuelÂ has to go as well.
John RiccoÂ GM. Bobby Valentine MGR. IÂ can get aboard that bandwaggon.
