Quote of the Day: Jon Heyman on Jerry Manuel

Jun 21, 2010, 11:13 AM EDT

Jon Heyman isn't a stats guy, but he has totally quantified "vibes"


Time to give Jerry Manuel an extension. He has fostered a positive vibe around the Mets.

Jon Heyman, hopefully being ironic.

Note: I do this quite a bit and no one ever notices, but I do feel the need to disclose the fact that when it comes to tweet-quotes, I often do some slight editing for the sake of readability. I did that here too, as you can see if you click through to Heyman’s tweet. I know this is potentially controversial, but you can be sure that any changes I make in this regard are non-substantive.

For example, if I were to make any substantive changes to this particular quote, it would read “Time to give Jerry Manuel an extension. Because the Mets haven’t done anything psychotically self-destructive like that for several months now and wouldn’t it be great fun if there were to do so now?”

    I didn’t know Scott Boras was representing managers now…

    Maybe ‘ll just turn off my spam filter and forward everything to Jerry Manuel@nymutts.com. Then he can choose among the free offers and grow his own extension.
