Jerry Manuel fined/suspended for tonight's game


Dave Jauss will manage tonight. At least we'll probably have a better chance to win!

Manuel Gets Vote of Confidence From Minaya


Hopefully this is the type of "vote of confidence" that comes only weeks before said manager gets fired.

Davidoff: Maybe Mets Should Start By Firing Manuel


This is the column the mainstream media has resisted writing. Per Davidoff: Contemplate whether you're giving your team its optimal chance to win with Manuel running the clubhouse, writing out the lineup card and making in-game, on-the-fly decisions. For based on what we've seen for the past baseball season and a half, I'm not sure how you come up with "Yes" as the answers to those questions. This isn't a fun column to write, because we media folk are mostly human, and Jerry Manuel comes off as an eminently likable man. Davidoff recognizes that Manuel's strong relationship with the media has earned him some goodwill. Imagine if Manuel had the personality of Joe Girardi or Willie Randolph. He would be the target of daily tabloid headlines calling for his head. A good read, click through for the full version.

Christina Kahrl Doesn't Think Much Of Jerry Manuel


From a Baseball Prospectus Chat today: "Dave (NJ): Jerry Manuel... Was he this bad in Chicago? Christina Kahrl: He was, and he will be. That the Mets were impressed with him was proof they didn't remember that this was what happened last time around: Manuel aced his interview, says all the right things in a conference room, and then handicapped his ballclub with his fascination with ways of insinuating himself into the ballgame. I know it means something to Mets fans if I label the man "Torborgian," but that's what you're working with, with a dash of braggadocio to spice things up a bit." Unnecessary usage of "braggadocio" aside, Kahrl is spot on. It seems like Jerry is more concerned with projecting his personality onto the events of a game rather than giving his team the best chance to win. His on-the-field job is to create the best possible lineup and make smart substitutions, and he's failing horribly at both. I'm fine with the post-game joking and "gangsta" talk, as long as that stuff doesn't make its way into game management. Link via jasondg.
