Bob Geren: Meh

Forgive me, but I don’t have a strong reaction to the news that Bob Geren will be the new bench coach for the Mets.
He’ll be, ultimately, a cog in the decisions made by Terry Collins. And a manager’s decisions- not the effort put into the season by the players, but his tactical decisions- are worth a small number of runs either way over an entire year.
So sure, Geren could be worth a fraction of that, positively or negatively.
For Collins, getting that input is key, since his job depends on maximizing that impact. Ultimately, for the rest of us, it is unlikely the entire tenure of Bob Geren, bench coach, will mean very much.
