Al Leiter and John Franco are now baseball operations advisors for the Mets.

I like Al Leiter.

I dislike John Franco.

I don't know what either of them brings to the table other than nostalgia.

Both have years of experience, so I won't discount out of hand, but, yeah, seems like a trip down memory lane.

Franco is a jerk and a half. Met him multiple times, know someone who worked for him. Not a nice guy.

I didn't realize Leiter wasn't with YES anymore. What about MLB network?

Probably not if he's working for Mets now.

This story neatly blends 2 of the Wilpon's most puzzling traits - maudlin sentimentality and a stunning lack of understanding of Met fans.

Bring in Seaver in to be assistant pitching coach.

I did just read that Leiter wants to spend more time with his 18 year old kid in HS. RHP. Gonna be drafted this June. Committed to Vandy.

Marchand wrote in January that Leiter will still be working with the MLB Network. Not sure if that changes now.

A lot of Mets fans can do nothing but complain.
