In what could be the end for Mets hitting coach Howard Johnson David Lennon of Newsday tweeted that Minaya twice would not say definitively that the staff will remain intact on Tuesday when the Mets return to action. This past Thursday Minaya while in L.A. was quoted saying,
“Jerry Manuel’s our manager,” Minaya said. “Look, any time you’re going to have a couple losing things, those things are going to pop up, but there’s no discussion at all. Jerry Manuel is our manager, going to be our manager — very happy with the job he’s done.”
I guess Jerry will not be looking over his shoulder on his flight back to NY.
