    You're exactly correct here. In the past 2 off-seasons, we've had a chance to get a fantastic GM like Chaim Bloom, and allow him to pick from a large pool of experienced managers. Combine that with the more than solid base of talent he'd have inherited, and we'd have had an instant contender.

    Instead, we continue to have Fred, Jeff, and the same puppet GMs we've had for 33 years now. I'm sure Fred and Jeff will continue to make out the lineup cards. Look for Cano to remain in the middle of the infield, and middle of the order.

    I will take this chance to admit, Alderson did a very nice job with his early round picks. He made numerous awful decisions, but left the team in decent shape.
    I agree, I know you said he was terrible but it takes a long time to figure out if draft picks will work out. Or trades also. Example- Devers turned 23 this week and he was signed in 2013. Rosario is 23 and he signed in 2012. Gleyber Torres is 22 signed in 2013. A long time.

      I like Girardi. With that said he was as nervous and tense as can be in the dugout, with a talented team and the highest payroll.
      The manager doesn't pitch, field or hit. We all know that.
      How could anyone answer the question of an unknown manager when he is unknown? I can't.
      I liked this post.
      Put it in the books.

        Ya know, you saying this reminds me that no matter how things turn out for Princess Thor in 2020, the Mets got the better part of the Dickey deal.

          Indeed. And d’Arnaud wasn’t the best but he was a major leaguer.

              Taking a sabbatical. Take care - I am sure the manager decision will be awesome.

                I wish Mickey the best. Not qualified to manage but from all accounts an excellent pitching coach. Trading LIC for Southern California probably not a bad trade.

                  Sometimes I simply don't know when to let up. I've already given myself a 50-minute lecture.

                    Love your references.

                    Will the next manager say “Call me Eduardo”?

                      Yes , and if we ask , he will teach us all the mambo. Why everybody’s doing it !

                      I wanted Girardi who averaged 91 wins for 10
                      years . I wonder how many Mets managers , after getting fired from the Mets , got other MLB manager jobs ? Joe Torre ? .....any help ?

                      • It’s not over yet. Pat Murphy of the Brewers also interviewed for the job. Andy Martino- there’s also another candidate who interviewed.
                        May be a bakers dozen at this point.

                          • Wes Westrum also. 6 including Torre. And the book isn’t closed on the recent managers.

                                Wow, Westrum! I would've totally forgotten his 1970s. Nice catch.

                                For some reason, I'd also thought both Torborg and Bamberger threw their proverbial hands in the proverbial air after their adverbial tenures.
