In 1993, Dallas Green replaced Jeff Torborg as manager. They finished 59-103 that season. Ouch ….
And hiring Green was a last-ditch effort by Al Harazin to save his job. When Joe McIlvaine took over months later, he was forced to stick with Green, even though he wanted to go in a different direction.
Everyone wants to talk about Vince Coleman or Bobby Bonilla, but I think the hiring—and retaining—of Dallas Green typified everything that was wrong with the Met organization, circa 1993-1996.
