Mets Should've Fired Omar Minaya, Kept Jerry Manuel
I like Jerry Manuel too (who doesn't?) despite the fact that he too was also a part of the two biggest collapses in Mets history. I knew it was a longshot, but I wanted the Wilpons to fire Omar Minaya and keep Manuel. Omar doing nothing to help the Mets horrible bullpen this year is the biggest reason why the Mets aren't in the playoffs, thus, giving him a 4-year deal was yet another asinine move by the Mets owners. But I'm glad that Jerry Manuel will be back, he deserves a chance to put his own stamp on this team.
