Okay now that the Mets have absolutely no chance of the post season as they were mathematically eliminated from the 2010 post season, can we put the 2011 plan in motion?
I am sick and tired of all the rumor and innuendo about Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel’s job situation if both of them are getting the boot then boot them out today. It’s obvious that Manuel is a done and it should be even more obvious that Minaya is as well. There is no reason to keep Jerry Manuel around, let him go home, let Dave Jauss run the team for the next two weeks and start taking interviews for the job of Mets manager in 2011.
Same for Minaya, either fired him or put out a press release that he will be reassigned to VP of Scouting and Player Personnel. It’s the petty himming and hawing bullshit that pisses me off with this organization, time to fucking man up there Jeffey Skill Sets and take charge. Think of this as your second Bar Mitzvah, “today you are a baseball man”
Peter Gammons is still spouting off about Bobby Valentine being the organization choice to manage the Mets. I don’t want to go all in on this Valentine Returns talk because I don’t want to be crushed if it doesn’t happen. Right now guys like Gammons and the other baseball yenta Jon Heyman are giving me a bad case of Blue and Orange balls.
I would be one happy Mets fan if Valentine was brought back not only as manager but in a capacity of a decision maker on player trades and acquisitions. You could name John Ricco the GM and let him be the paper pusher as that seems to be his strength and also the team spokesman with the proviso that he ever utters the term “at the end of day” he has to have his nipples twisted.
If you have a plan Jeffey start putting it in place. Top candidates are starting to find employment so put down the Nintendo DS and tell your little buddies no more play dates this week you have a lot of work to do young man get to it and start making moves. As of today it’s 2011 on my Mets calendar.
