Willie Randolph is staying, but what about his coaching staff? It’s under review. I have a new poll on which coaches should go. Weigh in here and vote across the page.
Peterson gets the credit for resurrecting Glavine, and straightening out Perez and Maine. The blame for kazmir, and the bad trades omar made this winter cant be proven to be his handiwork, just a lot of fan conjecture is all Ive seen. So Lets keep him around another year.
We all still have a bad taste in our mouths from Henderson playing cards while the team was fighting for its life in 1999. That cloud is not going away and when Reyes goes downhill and displays ricky like attitudes, like loafing soon after rickys hiring, Its time to say ba-bye rick. The others I have no opinion, except Hojo who gets points for being a great Met and mentor of David Wright.
Peterson, Henderson and Alomar should all be let go….I have a funny feeling Hojo will be moved back to 1B and Rudy Jaramillo (Texas) will be hired as the new hitting coach. He is definitely an Omar favorite.
Tom Nieto represents everything that is wrong with this organization. He has to go.
Benny: You want to elaborate. You know what kind of a job Nieto is doing? I’d be interested to hear your futher elaboration.
I think Benny was making a funny there.
I don’t think Rickey Henderson will return. He’ll be tied in with Jose Reyes’ slide.
Rick Peterson has been a positive with the rotation, but loses points with the bullpen.
I don’t understand the animosity directed at Sandy Alomar.-JD
The one coach that should absolutely not come back is Jerry Manuel the bench coach. Through out the season there were too many times when both he and Willie were asleep. Case in point late in the season a game where we actually had a substantial lead late in the game. Alou gets a double I believe and they wait until the the next batter sees two pitches before they pull Alou for Gomez as a pinch runner who was also going to be a defensive replacement.
THe other coach that needs to go is the bullpen coach. If we are going to keep Peterson which is still in doubt. Someone needs be accountable for the poor preparation and execution of the relief core.
Alomar seemed to wave a lot of runners in from 3rd that got pegged at the plate the past 2 yrs. He is awful.
I could honestly care less if any of them returned. But since that is not going to happen, retain Peterson, Conti, and HoJo. The rest can go. Also, when in the heck does Ken Oberkfell get a shot at coaching in the majors? His time is long overdue. He should be promoted to 3b or 1b coach.
I thought that Peterson needs to go. What adjustments did he make to the relief corps, or feedback did he give Willie as to whom to use and why. And what the heck was he doing being the first one out of the dugout after the Marlins pitcher threw behind Castillo on Saturday. That’s not his job and it made Willie look bad. As for Ricky, I have not heard one voice saying what he contributes to the Mets team. Is he there just for Reyes? What about the other 24 guys? Let Willie pick a guy who doesn’t take crap, like Frank Robinson as his bench coach.
Ricky Henderson needs to go. Aside from the Jose issue, he is a player turning into a coach. Willie is learning to be a manager.
All coaches on the team need to bring something to the table not be mentored.
Rickey certainly needs to go, but the man who gets the brunt of my ire is Jerry Manuel. Its doesn’t make sense to have a AL manager with a former AL manager as your bench coach for an NL team. As much as Willie screws up player moves, doesnt understand the concept of when his pitcher is due up to bat, and never does anything creative like a wheel play or a squeeze bunt, Jerry Manual is just as culpable. He’s supposed to be in Willie’s ear about that stuff all game long. But neither of them seem to have an idea about the NL game.
The worst play of this season, imo was is one of the Philly games where the Mets let the Phillies bunt the winning run to third with the first out of the inning. Standard bunt defense was not the right play there for any NL manager. And they just let it happen as though it was no big deal.
You must bear in mind that although most men and women experience some or several of the identical challenges that you do, your situation is distinctive to you and you alone. What’s happening inside your life proper now is critical along with a product of your uniqueness.
