The buzz that Fred and Mike Matheny have the same Alma Mater is making me rather uncomfortable.......

I heard that, too. Maybe, along with Matheny, he'll bring back Bill Livesey and Al Goldis as consultants.

Yeah I could totally see Matheny. Hopefully the Pads will snap him up first.

It is unbelievable that something so irrelevant could drive the process, and especially after their decision went so far off the rails the last time.

Mickey still getting paid more then Pete Alonso to not manage lol

If we can’t get Joe Maddon I’d go with Girardi, Hurdle or Showalter


Maddon probably doesn't interview anywhere; he probably already bought his own Angels jersey.

Girardi wants the Cubs. He's already been dropping lines about his Cubs ties.

You want nothing to do with Hurdle. He's bad.

Whomever they get we will more than likely be in the same spot 2 or 3 years for now asking him to be fired. I wasn't a fan of Mickey as a manager so I agree with this move, but that bullpen ultimately killed the Mets this season. Had Diaz and Familia been what they expected, that's what...............6-7 more wins and a Wild Card spot at least?

Anyways...........just get someone I like and can understand while they speak

He's already managing the Royals.

Neither side knows they've come to an agreement or even scheduled an interview, but he is their manager.

The bullpen sucked, but Callaway also blew several games with really poor in-game management.

In a season where you just miss the post season, you shouldn't be able to find several examples where the manager blew the game if he you're trying to justify keeping him around.

Also, Callaway fighting a member of the media probably stuck with the team. They may have kept him around because of the pennant chase after that, but the decision may have been finalized after that event.

I think it was best for both sides.

Maddon, Girardi, Showalter would all be terrific.

What about Mike Scioscia? Anyone have any thoughts on him? And is Bochy officially retired? Or might he be looking for a different gig?

and struck out once a game and people are talking like he's the second coming. Get real people. When you have a chance to get the best reliever in the game who's only 24 and give up Kelenic in the deal, you MAKE that deal. Stop with the nonsense.

Let's hire someone who's going to have an adversarial relationship with the Wilpons.

That'd be swell!!!!!
