Let’s start with the bad news, because it’s always smart to end on a high note!
In an exclusive report in the NY Post, Mike Puma discovers Fred Wilpon’s intent regarding Omar in 2010, and it ain’t pretty. Puma quotes Wilpon as saying “Am I going to bring Omar back next year? Absolutely. That’s a fact.”
But wait, there’s more! Omar had a little to say about Jerry Manuel, “Jerry is my guy, we work well together.”
So you heard it here…second – it’s looking more and more likely that both Omar and Jerry will be back to their respective roles in 2010. Remember readers, aspirin does not cure the pain within your heart.
There’s some good news this morning as well, and it comes via Adam Rubin’s “Surfing the Mets” blog. In another exclusive report, Rubin has some details on a few September call-ups. According to Adam, Josh Thole (C), Eddie Kunz (RP), and Nick Evans (1B/OF) will highlight this season’s call-ups. One has to wonder if Thole breaks out if he’ll get a chance to start at catcher next season!
