July 23: Morning Mets Links

NY Post – Omar Minaya insists Jerry Manuel will be the Mets manager, going forward. Total disconnect.

NY Daily News – Jeff Francoeur loves playing in New York. Oh, he is also requesting a trade. I bet he probably loves hitting too, since he doesn’t seem to want do it anymore, either.

The Daily Stache – Matt Esposito says Mets fans need to support the team. I say we support the team by hoping the Wilpons sell. How about a 20-game losing streak? That might do it.

OnTheBlack – Kerel Cooper on who’s hot and who’s not.

And here is snake oil salesman and Wilpon flack Omar Minaya, spinning some BS for you to enjoy. Is it too early to buy playoff tickets?
