General Manager Brodie Van Wagenen should spend top dollar and go out and hire Joe Girardi as the Mets next manager. Girardi is a proven winner, who can handle the pressure of New York. The Mets should not waste their time on a coach with no managerial experience, that’s the cheap way of doing it, and it doesn’t work. The Mets have a good young team, and a veteran manager like Girardi would be the perfect fit. The Mets won 86 games and should be contenders in the NL East, but they need to hire Girardi.
