In my opinion there is no way in HELL the Mets should rehire Torre as the manager. But I will still make a list of the PROS and CON so we can all make an educated decision.
CON….He is too old.
CON….He is probably burned out from lack of time off from managing.
CON….His family hasn’t seen him during the summer for like decades.
CON….He would want more money than the Wilpons will be willing to pay (THANK GOD)
CON….He is best suited for a team of mostly veterans….aka overpaid Yankees.
CON….His last World Series was 10 years ago.
CON….He is an AL manager who has lost the ability to correctly manage the bullpen.
CON….He is not firey (AKA no balls) enough- which is what the METS now need.
CON….He is known as being the manager of the team to have the worst ALCS choke in history.
CON….He has already managed the METS and had not one winning season…Avg winning % was .404
CON….He managed the Yankees…enough said.
WOW! All of these CONS and for the life of me I can not think of one PRO, That must mean he is not suitable to manage PERIOD, let alone manage our team.
So if the Wilpons are listening or reading they will see that Torre is not the answer. The following things need to happen to make the Mets a winning franchise again:
- We need a manager with experience and BALLS, aka Bobby V or Wally B.
- We need a GM who is able to work side by side with said manager and along side Jeffy boy.
- We need coaches that have actually excelled at their jobs and know how to TEACH aka Cliff Floyd or Todd Pratt has hitting coaches or the likes of a Jesse Orosco as pitching coach
- PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get us a medical and strength and conditioning staff that has a CLUE.
For once, just once, I would have liked to see the staff make an injured player come out of them game immediately so that they do not suffer the CONCUSSION SYNDROME.
With all that said I repeat…DO NOT HIRE TORRE HE IS NOT THE ANSWER.
