In a tune we’ve already heard this season, a Wilpon has made it known that Omar Minaya will be back for 2010. When Minaya was asked about Jerry Manuel, he sang the same song.
This time around, it’s head honcho Fred Wilpon making the call on Minaya. (Last time, it came from Jeff’s mouth.)
Mike Puma of the NY Post got in one question to Wilpon, asking if Minaya was coming back for at least another turn with the team.
“Am I going to bring Omar back next year?” Wilpon told Puma. “Absolutely. That's a fact.”
Later, Puma asked Minaya what his plans were for Manuel.
“Jerry is my guy,” Minaya told Puma. “We work well together.”
That’s two of the dreaded “votes of confidence.” Guess we just have to wait and see how it plays out.
