But lets face it; most fans expected the Wilpons to go through the interviewing process only to name him the GM. Now, we are only waiting for spam from Jeffy to confirm this. This is the man we want. This is probably the only guy that can fix the team.
The way I see it, there are two winners this week: John Ricco, who will likely be taken under Sandy's wing and ultimately be groomed to be the next general manager of the New York Mess...erm...Mets, and Bengie Molina, who will get a World Series ring no matter who wins it because he's played for both the Giants and the Rangers this season.
Now, that the top priority of the offseason has been settled, we need to get a manager. There are conflicting reports about Wally Backman; Twitter exploded with reports of Bobby V. going to the Brewers, which were quickly shot down. Some are even suggesting the remote possibility that Joe Torre could be considered. All though he might be too laid back. It has to be either Backman or Valentine with my vote going to Valentine, as long as he brings the Groucho Marx mustache with him.
