The Mets name their coaching staff

Mookie Wilson

I feel like we’ve reported on this multiple times already, but now it’s finally offical. The Mets have named their coaching staff: Dave Hudgens is the hitting coach, Ken Oberkfell is the bench coach, Mookie Wilson as first base coach, Chip Hale as third base coach, Dan Warthen is the pitching coach and Jon Debus as bullpen coach.

Don Long and Andy Van Slyke interviewed for the hitting coach’s job. Larry Bowa had been mentioned as a possible bench coach.  Wally Backman was going to lead the pep squad, but the Wilpons decided that they needed to cut costs and eliminated that essential position.

    Craig, did you have to sign working papers for Mookie to sign on as the first base coach?

      Only if she asks him to. And then he better. Or he’ll find himself on the floor with no control over body functions as she tases him until he submits, while her brother laughs.

      Hey, wait…are you allowed to comment on a Mutts post? Come to think of it, am I? Damn…maybe I should have asked first.

    Mookie Wilson!!!!

    OK, does this mean he has to foul off like a bazillion pitches before dribbling one down the first base line and running like he was on fire to get to his position at the beginning of each inning?
