Blogosphere is Down On Jerry Manuel

It’s only been a few weeks, but most of the blogosphere is unhappy with the Mets’ decision to bring back Jerry Manuel as manager. Metstradamus is the most recent, asking Jerry, “What Have You Learned?

Similarly, Mike Steffanos of MikesMets does not approve of Jerry Manuel’s re-election.

Also on MikesMets, Barry Duchan posts his winter predictions for the Mets.

Andrew Vazzano has done a very quick rundown / analysis on the Mets’ pitching staff — in a format that would make Mick Jones and Joe Strummer proud.

Also a hat tip to TheRopolitans for this video of Oktoberfest at Citi Field (if only I’d known!):

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.

    Sometimes the general fan base and bloggers are off base. In general I hope the front office doesn’t make decisions about baseball related stuff that they hear in the media and on the internet, but with Manuel, as I’ve been saying for over a year now, I don’t know what they’re listening to that’s positive to warrant making (or not making) the decision they made.

    Further sauce to the idea the lame brain decisions coming down are NOT omar’s.
