Forget your Valentine fantasies: Melvin will be the next Mets manager

Bob Melvin.jpegJon Heyman on the Mets’ managerial situation:

If Manuel goes, the Mets will almost assuredly hire Bob Melvin,
the ex-Diamondbacks manager who’s been serving as a Mets’ scout, to
replace him. And it’s probably not a good sign for Manuel that everyone
seems to know this.

Heyman is pretty plugged in with the Mets, so he’s probably right about this. And he made a good argument last month about why, irrespective of what people are talking about, it makes sense that the Mets would install Melvin (at least why it makes sense to the Wilpons).

Valentine has star power. So much that I keep forgetting all the reasons why he doesn’t make practical sense for the Mets.  It’s totally Melvin if and when Manuel goes.

    I hope some team takes him so I don’t have to endure his smugness on Baseball Tonight much longer.
