Sorry to be late with this, but easing back into school was not too easy today.
Here’s the presser from the Mets, or at least, the “important” part of it…
The New York Mets today announced that Mookie Wilson has returned to the organization as the team's minor league outfield and base running coordinator. Wilson, a former Mets player, coach and minor league manager, was last with the club in 2005 as the manager of the Brooklyn Cyclones (A) of the New York-Penn League.
"It's good to be back," said Wilson, 53, who makes his home in Eastover, SC. "This is where I started and I'm anxious to do whatever I can for the young kids in our system."
The club also announced that Bob Melvin, a former major league catcher and manger, will join the organization as a professional scout, Guy Conti has been named a Senior Advisor in the Minor League Department, and Frank Fultz has been named the Rehabilitation Pitching Coordinator.
So, let’s say you played on the 1986 New York Mets. Are you just waiting by your phone for the Mets to call to hire you?
Also, the number of internal Jerry Manuel replacements grows.
