    Still no love for Wally

    If this report is accurate, count the Tigers out.

    Guess its back to Vegas after all for Wally Ball.

    Still no love for Wally

    I still think he will wind up on an MLB staff if he isn't too stubborn

    I'm sure that's the last thing he'll be hired for.

    Scarecrow: I don't know... But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking... don't they?
    Dorothy: Yes, I guess you're right.

    Other teams don't have fond memories of Wally B the way the Mets and Mets fans do. To the other 29 teams, he's one of 30 AAA managers. I don't see Wally getting a chance as a coach for another team unless he has a connection to the manager. Wally will probably manage with the Mets AAA team, and when Collins contract expires in 2 years Wally's name will come up for the Mets job.
    Let's go Mets!

    Can everyone's favorite one-trick pony last that long?

    Terry is just a transitional manager just like George Cheeseburger.

    His new contract just proves that the Mets aren't planning to win until 2037, when a 78 year old Wally will take his rightful place like Davey Johnson did in 1984.

    Of course, at that point Wally will be so old that he'll be a transitional manager like Terry Collins.

    I have not read anything related to Wally interviewing with any team. If TC fails during the season I see Tim Teufel as the his interim successor.

    Wally is stuck in the minors.

    I Love NY Mets Baseball!!!!
