Now that the search for their general manager is over, the Mets can now concentrate on getting a manager. At the moment, they are in the early stages. Many names are being mentioned, and we all know that only a few will become serious contenders for the job.
Sandy Alderson said in yesterday's press conference that he would like a fiery manager. That gave this whole situation new life. Now people are saying that Wally Backman has a real shot to get the job because he fits Sandy's description of a fiery guy. The truth is that there is not one front-runner for getting the job. Everybody has an equal chance right now, and interviews are just beginning to take place.
