Wishing the @Mets organization well. I want to thank all of the pitchers I’ve had a chance to work with the best going forward. Remember “trust your stuff!!” As long as your wearing a uniform you have a chance to achieve your dream!! Good luck guys

To work elsewhere or just not interested in coaching anymore?

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Viola said in a text message that it’s “time for a change.”

A shame that he is leaving before he can have a chance to work with DP and Kay

Frank Viola is leaving the Mets organization after eight seasons as a minor league pitching coach on various levels: "Time for a change," he said in a text message. "It's been a while since I have been a free agent, a lot out there to look at."

Looks like he may get try for a MLB pitching coach gig.

Should have been awarded a big league job after so many years of service to the Mets and the success stories he's helped along the way. I wish him well.

Didn’t he have health problems. Maybe he was better off without the rigors of MLB at the time

Supposedly wants a big league job and oh look the Twins have a vacant coaching staff.

Think these things are connected.

Would be a shame if the new GM comes in and cleans house coaching staff wise. But maybe they keep Eiland and Mickey in the front office because their player evaluation skills, from keeping Harvey, to signing Vargas, to claiming Chris Beck...**Italian chef kiss**

I think he was more useful where he was, but the Show is where you get the perks and the prestige.
