He didn't break much before and he's certainly bot breaking anything after his hit piece on TC.

He broke today the story that Long and McEwing were out of the running @ 1:12.

Mets have been reaching out to candidates. Per sources, Kevin Long and Joe McEwing are out of the running for the managerial job.


Sherman confirmed it @ 1:20.

Kevin Long and Joe McEwing are indeed no longer candidates to be #Mets mgr. @MarcCarig 1st. Hear they plan to announce who it is tmrw


Carig obviously has good sources, his TC story was no fluke, just good reporting.

This is pretty cool for Callaway and the Mets. Now just waiting to see who's bench coach and pitching coach.

I would think bench coach is a vet with some managerial experience. Easy for first time managers to mess up in game stuff.

That's where I hope they continue to do the unexpected. Veteran bench coaches often are divisive...

Don't know anything about this guy and I've never put much stock in the manager makes a big difference, point of view, but I'm happy with the pick, especially if the Indians are sad to lose him. If feels like a very un-mets-like move. That's why I like it. I also kinda felt Terry was a little past his prime. It just feels nice to have a young manager for a change.

As an FYI, on Indian message boards they call him "Mick"

Ok, I'm now on board. Mickey so fine (with praise the Lord using best pitchers in high leverage situations) he blows my mind: https://www.mlb.com/video/mlb-now-micke ... 1208425083.

P.S. Don't break my heart, Mickey.

I bet the Mets are going to be much better with pitcher usage and with creative bullpen roles.

Also looks like a guy (based on nothing but my first impression) who may be able to stand up to Cespedes and get him with the program.

have to give an eyeroll for this. that "piece" sounded like a hatchet job to me and especially if "sources" included Jeff or Jeff stooges. Carig got the Mets manager job wrong several times throughout the process so yeah it does appear that he was led astray, which is to say he's not really in the know.
