Coaching Staff? Check.
The Mets have issued a press release on their 2005 coaching staff.
Manny Acta, Sandy Alomar, Sr., Guy Conti, and Jerry Manuel are all in. No Mookie, no HoJo, no Oberkefell, and no Alfonso. Next up is Rick Down to be named as the hitting coach.
In other news, the Mets name Ray Ramirez as the head trainer. He was previously the head trainer for the Texas Rangers.
Overall, I'm a bit dissapointed that HoJo, Oberkefell, nor Alfonso got a shot, but that staff certainly looks experienced and more than capable. No complaints from me on anyone. As for the Trainer, it can only be good things to get a new trainer and if I remember correctly, he was highly praised in Will Carroll's interview on Metsblog.com.
The Mets have put together probably the most racially diverse front office and coaching staffs this past season and now that this is all finally taken care of, let's get Minaya working on filling out the roster.
Does anyone still wonder if Omar has full autonomy?
