The Mets Managerial Debate

The debate got me thinking the Mets/SNY should just take the managerial search to the people. Clearly the Wilpons are terrible at hiring, and Wags is a disaster, so why not let people like Frank the train guy pick.

All the managerial candidates on stage. Girardi, Beltran, Scout Guy, Tony Perez’ son, Wags’ nephew Beto, Pete Davidson….whoever

We will start with a pre-debate show where guys like Andy Martino and John Harper tell us what’s about to happen, all of which is incorrect of course.

Gelbs, Howie and Baseball Operations Expert Jessica Mendoza ask questions. Everyone gives a speech about how they plan to fix the Mets.

The moderators can ask questions like..

“Mr. Girardi, if the GM saddles you with a guy making $20M and the player clearly isn’t hitting, do you feel like the player should play?”

“Mr. Beltran, how do you plan to keep the team strong for several years given that some idiot traded away all the prospects?”

“Mr. Scout Guy, you’ve never managed. Why the hell would we even be considering you? Are you repped by CAA?”

“Mr. Petez, how does it feel to be here?” (That was Gelbs’ Question. It wasn’t very interesting.)

“Beto, if Uncle Brodie trades Syndergaard to the Yankees, who do you think takes those 32 starts?” (Question submitted by Andy Martino)

We can poll the fans and select the manager. Then when the fans make a stupid pick they can all shut up because they will be the ones who picked.

It would draw a huge TV number and would give Jeff and Wags cover – it’s not them being stupid this time, it’s YOU!

Hey that’s a weird headline.

DEA interviews Matt Harvey, Angels in Tyler Skaggs’ probe – Los Angeles Times

I wonder why the Times would single out Harvey in the headline?  They also used a big image of him, just like I did.

I wonder why the DEA would want to speak to Matt about this?  I guess he and Skaggs became good friends during Spring Training.


Report: SNY Mets ratings were up!

Via a really tiny graph that didn’t embiggen when I clicked on it, Forbes reports SNY’s ratings were up!   

Using my Advanced Command Plus technology I was able to zoom on their otherwise unreadable graphic and learn that the Mets’ rating was up t 2.47 from 2.3 and their households increased from 163,000 to 175,000.

Baseball is back baby!  Mets games were the 4th most watched thing on Baseball Nights, and the #2 thing on cable.  The Other Brand Of New York Baseball was the #1 thing on cable.   Baseball is back.

The article tells us 13 of the 29 RSN’s (Canada not included) saw their ratings go up.  Baseball is back baby.  Hold on I am being passed a note…

I am told that 16 of the 29 saw their ratings not go up.  Oh.

Anyway baseball is back and hotter than ever, and teens everywhere are watching baseball and not playing the Fortnite update.    Baseball is back baby.

Let’s check back, oh say in 2024 when JDG is old, the Fortnite teens are in their 20s and the Mets’ cupboard is bare and Wags is long gone – let’s see how SNY does then.

Mets Police Morning Laziness: is Marcus Stroman going to take over Todd Frazier’s role?

SLACKISH REACTION:  Nothing happened and there are managerial rumors.

Marcus Stroman continues his campaign to be the New Todd Frazier – that’s the player on paper that should be a hometown favorite but somehow just isn’t – by liking a bunch of anti-Yankees tweets.   Dude, they didn’t want you.

I know some people will think that him liking the tweets is the bees knees, but those people like to spell LGM with an F in it.  They can LGM off.

The Dodgers did not want Baseball Operations Jessica Mendoza in their clubhouse. I still wish to be educated on what contributions she and Al Leiter made to the 2019 Mets, other than being Friends Of Wags.
