Re:


He's as old as Sandy is (and older than Collins). Still, even a drunk LaRussa is an improvement over a sober Collins (though they both have DUIs in common).

Re:


so why was this guy never linked to the Mets manager search? He had success as a manager of a mid market team...

Re:


Sounds like Kevin Long will likely be named the manager in the next few days (before the start of the World Series)...if Metsblog is correct with their hints

They could go that way and hire Acta who is an experienced manager to serve as bench coach when Long demonstrates he's in over his head. Better that than the other way around.

Re:


Since the Yankees lost and they are a franchise that actually does what it takes to win, will they choose not to renew Joe Girardi and will the inferiority-complex Mets try to nab him?

Mets offer Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway manager job
BY Kristie Ackert


HOUSTON — In a surprise move, the Mets have asked Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway to be their next manager, an industry source confirmed Sunday.

The 42-year-old is expected to accept the position, the source said, and will replace Terry Collins, whose contract was up after seven seasons. The team has yet to make an announcement.

Callaway has spent the past five years with Cleveland andplayed five major-league seasons.

The Mets had interviewed and were also considering hitting coach Kevin Long, Mariners third base coach Manny Acta and White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing.

Long, who has been the team's hitting coach for three seasons, was initially considered a favorite to get the job. He was informed on Sunday that he was not getting the promotion. It is uncertain if Long will be back next season at this point.

Collins announced on Oct. 1 that after a "tremendous run" he was tepping down as Mets manager but would remain in an undefined role with the organization.

GM Sandy Alderson said Collins had taken the Mets "...from a situation where there were real questions about the organization, about the team and took us to the apex of a World Series."

"And for that together with the two playoff appearances we will all be tremendously grateful," Alderson added.

Collins finished 551-582 as the Mets’ longest tenured manager.

Re:


I have written my thoughts about it for an article running Monday morning at Mack's Mets. In short, I like it and am surprised by it, but it's a hollow gesture if they bring back the same coaches instead of having faith in their choice and letting Callaway pick his own staff.
