Maybe a surprise name and a long shot, but Venable is in his first season as a bench coach with the Red Sox. Before that, however, the 38-year old spent four seasons with the Cubs, including two as first base coach and the 2020 season as third base coach.
A nine-year MLB veteran, Venable is also close with longtime front office executive and master rebuilder of teams Theo Epstein, who has recently been connected to openings in the Mets’ front office.
Hey if Theo says he’s the guy then I am in. But if Theo isn’t here, a 38 year old untried manager? How many times are we going to make that mistake. Pete Alonso needs a disciplinarian not an older brother.
Espada, Houston’s bench coach, has been in the running for several big-league managerial jobs. He reportedly received multiple interviews for the Cubs’ gig in 2019, and interviewed with the Giants around the same time.
Espada knows New York because he spent three years on Joe Girardi’s Yankees coaching staff. He seems to be a riser in the industry.
That’s nice. We aren’t doing an untried manager again.
