Wouldn't be the worst hire for the Mets.


I actually agree BUT you know there's zero shot Sandyco brings in an 'old-school' guy and a name manager when they can finally get their faceless analytics believer.

Dusty is pissed! Cant blame him. I think he would love to manage the Mets just to spite the Nats, but yea, Sandy will never hire him

he's a great baseball guy and the players will respect him no doubt

Granted these aren't the choices I would have made or expected, but I'm not going to forecast a team crashing over it.

How about crashing for all the other reasons?

Agreed. On Long, is it clear he's just a continuation of what's happened here just because he was on the staff? Maybe he has a lot of ideas that were not implemented because someone else was in charge. It's not like Terry brought him in himself.

On Acta, again, not my top choice, but his name seems to come up every year for at least one opening. He also appears to be a forward-thinking guy.

We'll see, but neither would scream disaster to me.

What ever happened to Rudy Jaramillo? Didn't we consider him during the 04/05 search as the "King of the Hitting Coaches" candidate?

Oh I'm very confident they'll be capable of the crashing regardless of who the mgr is...

Beware, #Mets fans. Sounds like Manny Acta (a mere 146 games under .500 for his career) might have "lit up the room" in his interview.


I remember thinking this was inevitable back in the Omar years re: Acta eventually coming home. Sort of funny to see it happen now, but maybe further's my forever parallel that despite the optics being as different as possible, the Omar and Sandy eras are super similar by the time all is said and done.

Smart people seem to like Acta, which means if nothing else, the randomness of baseball that is likely to cost us games will likely get its blame (rather than the constant piling on the manager) and/or MMQB'ing every move will cease (at least for a bit).

Maybe we'll also get a reprieve on the daily lineup order freak-outs. Because Acta's were put together with ANALYTICS [insert trademark icon here].
