Meet the Mets
Finding someone able to handle the Mets’ “special brand of absurdity” is their greatest challenge in finding a manager, writes Ken Davidoff of the New York Post.
For the third offseason in a row, the Mets are looking to fill a major job in the organization. Tim Healey discussed Brodie Van Wagenen’s thought process and what he’s looking for in a new manager.
Kevin Baez has also expressed interest in the job.
