Bethlehem's Quatraro is the Mets Right Choice Not the Safe One
Matt Quatraro has been in professional baseball for 24 years. 16 of those seasons have been coaching. In his early coaching days, Quatraro would spend off-seasons volunteer coaching for the University at Albany Great Danes baseball team. Matt is a smart man. He is easy to be around. He is a team oriented and understands an organization's structure and each individual's role in its success. That is the baseball business today. That's the kind of person, if I had Steve Cohen's bank account, I would have representing my $2.5 billionaire dollar team on the field. Oh, and Matt's a competitor to the core and knows how to win at the Major League Level. Louis Rojas unfortunately didn't have that experience.

According to reports Sunday night by MLB network's Jon Heyman, the Mets have narrowed down their search to 3 and believe it or not, it looks like they picked the right 3. Buck Showalter, Joe Espada and Bethlehem Central High School grad Matt Quatraro are the 3 finalists. Eppler almost hired Showalter in Anaheim and has ties to Espada from their days in the Yankees organization. They were the first two names reported on Sunday by Heyman, maybe that was intentional, maybe not.

There are a few other candidates sprinkled in, including Tampa Bay Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro, but Buck is getting the most attention. Showalter should get the most attention but shouldn't get the job.

Bethlehem's Matt Quatraro Enjoying Tampa Bay Rays Historic Year
On Wednesday night the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Houston Astros by a score of 7-0. The win gave the Rays their 98th victory of the season, the most in franchise history. Yankee fans may snarl, but there is no denying it is very easy for me to root for the Rays. The person that Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash depends on the most is a 1992 graduate of Bethlehem High School and subsequent BCHS Hall of Famer, bench coach Matt Quatraro.
