It was tough to narrow down the No.1 moment from the New York Mets 2010 season, but as I was going through the list, this is the only moment that is No.1 in my mind: The firing of GM Omar Minaya and manager Jerry Manuel.
I hate to focus on the negative of this ball club, but in my opinion, these two men were the epitome of the rough years our favorite franchise faced. They brought in free agents on large contracts that were total busts, and also managed in a way to get on the bad side of some players.
Overall, I feel the organization finally realized its mistakes were at the top and addressed the issue properly. Now with the new regime in place, we all hope that next year’s run down of the top plays will include many more winning ball games, and I think I can speak for many Mets fans out there when I say I’m more excited for the next couple years of baseball than I have ever been.
