As the Great Met Manager Hunt continues, it is clear that Sandy and the Ex-GM's are not at all considering Bobby Valentine.

For some fans, that is welcome news. Others may be displeased that the mercurial manager of our last world series team won't get a second chance.

While nothing is official, today's NY Times had a juicy tidbit buried in its requiem for ESPN's Jon Miller and Joe Morgan:

ESPN waited until Miller and Morgan's contracts were up to make the change; soon enough, it will announce that Dan Shulman and Bobby Valentine will join Hershiser for 2011 and beyond

In case you missed it, ESPN announced the other day that Miller and Morgan are done on Sunday Night baseball, after 21 years. Now Bobby will reunite in the broadcast booth with his veteran pitcher from 1999. I may have to tune into those broadcasts, although I'm sure I will be quickly tuning out after a few innings.

So does anyone think Terry Collins WON'T be the Mets manager next year?

Clint Hurdle!!!

I'll remember Clint's time with the Mets for his comment on his unsuccessful pinch hitting role that year, he called it his summer of 4 to 2.
