John Franco as bullpen coach? Let's hope he likes Syndergaard's choice of workout music.

Acta new bench coach for the Mariners, still could be a candidate for our managerial spot

I've met Franco a few times and he always came off as a smug little jerk.

Sounds like Dave Eiland's name has come up as somebody the Mets will consider as Dan Warthen's replacement.

Shock would be the operative word if it's Long, both for the jump from HC, but also bc if making a change there would be no one named that would represent less of a change than Long. Long would be more a continuation of the current coaching staff than anything. If they think it's time for a different philosophy & voice in the locker room, then bring someone in who isn't on the current coaching staff for goodness sakes.

It just seems like a hedge to keep Long in the family as long as possible... avoiding a forever decision, as it were.


Not saying I'm rooting for Kevin Long, but do we know his managerial philosophy? Maybe he's a guy who'd been clamoring for more shifts or analytics or some change to what Terry was doing?

I don't think any of us suspected he would need one.

Last time I met him was in the hardware store (we were the only ones in the store outside of the cashier) "Wow, John Franco, huge fan, big Met fan" Franco (tilts head down) "uh, thanks" (with an odd attitude). I told my friend about it at the time (not remembering he previously WORKED for John Franco at a batting cage place Franco owned) and he said "He's a jerk, the workers all hated him he acted like he was Michael Jordan, he's John Franco".

Is John Franco really interested in coaching or is he interested in what he thinks is a cushy job with a nice paycheck? Screw that guy.
