WOULD BOBBY VALENTINE COME BACK TO THE METS? HE WON’T RULE IT OUT

Bobby Valentine was at an event at the Japan Society in Manhattan last week and as always with Bobby V, gave some provocative answers during a Q & A session. When asked about a return to manage the Mets BV had this to say:

 Valentine fielded questions about managing the Metsagain (“It’s not as though you don’t go back to the girl that dumped you, but it takes a little while, it takes a little convincing . . .”) and what the Mets need to do to be successful in the 2010 season (“They need to stay healthy, but I like their talent.”)

So Bobby wants to be wooed a bit by the Mets, if that’s the case Freddy Skill Sets should be jumping in limo with Jay Horowitz driving, with flowers, chocolates and champagne, ready to pitch his best woo.

  1. At least you know with a team that is looking for everyone of its players to be lightning in a bottle, with Bobby V, you actually have a shot to have this work.

  2. I never loved Bobby as manager (why did he leave Leiter in after 300 pitches with the WS on the line??????), but he’s a CT guy and he has the pulse that our manager lacks, so wtf. I’m all for it (though I’d rather give Wally a shot).

    Rich, my close friend, I think “we” need to make changes from the top down so therefore I’d install a “Baseball COO type to direct “our” organization. A new manager would follow. Lots of cultural changes need to be enacted. With the Wilpons that will be one massive chore.

  4. Rich, while, I do think that most fans would love to see Backman be the next manager, I do not think that will happen for a year or two. Although Bobby V as manager & Backman as bench coach would be nice. As for Michael’s whole culture, I agree totally…I know that Joel Sherman is a moron, and another one of the media’s Highlander suck-ups, but his story of the other day has a point, four guys in charge of the Mets a decade ago, and the three the Mets have hired have all basically proven to be jokes…and the one that got away. And before people go crazy, the Mariners have not played a game yet under Big Z, but at least after one offseason, the Ms appear to have a legitimate baseball plan in place, including wisely spending money, trades, and not letting their ace pitcher leave. Anyone here, have any idea of the Mets’ plan after all this time. I mean besides cornering the back-up catcher market? Oh, and getting older and more broken down, instead of younger and more athletic, as promised in 2004.

  5. Sign me up for the cultural change. The broom can’t come out fast enough for me.
