  • Next Met Manager

    Willie Randolph will never see the new manager's office at Citi. There's every reason to believe he's gone by the trading deadline.

    Justified or not, right or wrong, it really doesn't matter at this point. The sharks are circling, the press is chattering loudly & Miniya gave him a vote of confidence, which we all know is the kiss of death.

    Two Questions:
    1) Who do you think will be the next manager ?
    2) Who would you like to see as manager ?


    In various different settings, including this board, I've heard the following names batted around over the last few days;
    in no particular order -
    Jerry Manuel
    Bobby Valentine
    Ken Oberkfell
    Howard Johnson
    Sam Perrlozzo
    Wally Backman
    Lee Mazzilli
    Felipe Alou
    John Stearns
    Larry Bowa
    Sandy Alomar
    Kirk Gibson

    1 More Question:

    1) Do you know of any other possibilities ?

      Congratulations on becoming the new moderator for the Mets forum ! I had no idea !

      After you share with us when this happened, you can tell us where the thread is that deals with posters opinions on who will be the next manager ?

      Please do not link to a post dealing with why the current manager should be fired as that is a different subject - but I'm sure you realise that since you're assuming moderator duties !

          I still belive in Willie. It's going to take a lot to change my mind.

            NY METS Regular Season 2008 Thread, OK, how much longer??? and Should Willie Randolph get Fired? are three threads that dealing with the current situation and Randolph as a manager. Why not just post this in one of those threads?

            BTW: Where is the "Who is the next pitching coach?"-thread?

                  Its not that big of a deal.. Similar subjects but asking different questions... I dont really see a big deal either way about it so lets just let it go..


                  Anyways, interesting article from the Daily News:

                    I believe in Willie still!!

                    Just casue the team is running through a tough stretch, does not mean it's all his fault..and he brought us to the playoffs once! (one out from the WS) and he can and will do it again...

                    Also, heres a sign that he's a good manager..

                    today's game, he was SCREAMING and YELLING from the dugout at Castillo to change position...he finally does, what happens?? ground ball RIGHT at Castillo

                    Willie KNOWS what he's doing..the team is just going through a rough stretch and it's the media that's blaming this all on him.

                      According to the meeting held before the rainout on Friday, Willie's job is NOT in jeopardy.

                      And, as it turns out, the meeting may have done some good. Always nice to see the Metsies beat up on those other guys on the mainland, especially on their home turf. :applaud:
                      Put it in the books.

                            The End Is Near . . .

                            I read this on ESPN.

                            You know that saying "actions speak louder than words" ?

                            Jeff Wilpon just sent up a big red warning flare - Willie's time is definitly coming to an end ...

                            So let the guessing games begin !

                              I like Willie and don't blame him for the Mets suck-a-tude. If he has to go my list of candidates:

                              Manny Acta
                              Tony Pena
                              Buck Schowalter
                              Larry Bowa
                              Bobby Valentine
