Backman reportedly out of contention for Mets manager

Posted By James Kwasnik On October 28, 2010 @ 11:09 am In Uncategorized | Comments Disabled

According to a report on Newsday.com, new Mets general manager Sandy Alderson will not choose Brooklyn Cyclones manager Wally Backman [1] as the new skipper for the rudderless team.

Some names the article tosses out as candidates are former Brewers manager Ken Macha and Mets third-base coach Chip Hale.

Now that Backman is seemingly out of the picture, who is your choice for manager? What do you think the Mets should look for in a manager? A big name with experience or a no-name who has nothing to lose and something to prove? According to the Newsday article, it would seem Alderson is looking for someone closer to the latter.

UPDATE: Joe Girardi reportedly will sign a three-year $9 million extension with the Yankees [2], so obviously he’s off the list of potential managers.
