I'll start this thread by prefacing that I am not demanding Wally Backman for manager, but I now find it ironic that Terry Collins has shot his mouth off 3 times this weekend at extremely likely the chagrin of the Front Office.
- Pushed for Montero to be brought up for Wednesday to replace Mejia in the rotation (The FO has clearly laid out the plan for Montero to the media the past couple weeks)
- Restated that he wants to get more PAs for Eric Young, Jr. (Collins has been fighting for him all year against the FO)
- Wants Familia as his closer (I've already gone over why this is very unlikely. Very few if any FO in baseball are pushing pre-arb guys into closer roles anymore)
Backman is down at AAA, keeping his mouth shut. Maintaining the front office philosophy. And now we have Collins (in addition to butchering decision after decision this past week) shooting from the hip against the Front Office about various things he wants when the criticism against Backman for so long was that he was a loose cannon who wouldn't be controllable.
Based on Collins decisions this past week that have directly contributed to losses, he needs to just shut his trap or maybe he can just do us all a favor and quit like he did in his other two managerial stops.
