The Brooklyn Paper is reporting that Jeff Wilpon met with Wally Backman last night at MCU Park.

Meanwhile, SNY’s Ted Berg recently sat down to interview Backman on his success in Brooklyn – the Cyclones just clinched the division for the first time since 2007 – and his managing style:

    I think Backman’s a virtual lock for the job. Not sure if he’s the best candidate, but he seems to be the people’s choice. There was definitely more to that meeting than stadium renovations.

    No. but I do wonder if the Mets/Jeff Wilpon might see if he can provide a spark’ for the last 30 games.

    I think we’re giving Jeffy Madison a bit too much credit here.

    He merely stopped by Coney Island to ask Wally if Gargiulo’s prices went up at all during the year. The Wilpons plan was to raise Cyclones tickets according to what the rest of the neighborhood is doing.
