Reports: Bethlehem's Quatraro One of Three Finalist For Mets Job
Reports: Bethlehem's Quatraro One of Three Finalist For Mets Job
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.

Here's How Bethlehem's Quatraro Hurdles Buck for Mets Job
Much of the New York Mets fanbase along with the media, me not included, are rooting for the Mets to hire former Albany-Colonie Yankee skipper and long time major league manager, Buck Showalter. 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.

A straight steal of home plate in the Major League Baseball playoffs or World Series is something you see Jackie Robinson do in a Ken Burns documentary or you may have seen Javier Baez do it a five years ago when he was with the Chicago Cubs against the San Francisco Giants. Nonetheless, it's rare. Last night in the first game of the American League Division Series featuring the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays, we got to see it again in the Rays 5-0 victory over the Red Sox.

The Wild Card game wasn't exactly the goal that Hal Steinbrenner had for his franchise this year. But baseball can be a cruel game. If Giancarlo Stanton hits that baseball a fraction of a millimeter differently in the 6th inning on Tuesday, that game is tied and there may have been a different result. But he didn't and there wasn't. That is what baseball does. It is extremely humbling.

When New York Yankees General Manger Brian Cashman traded for Anthony Rizzo, he knew exactly what he was getting. Cashman had signed a large framed, slick fielding first baseman name Mark Teixeira back in 2009. That worked out pretty well for the Bronx Bombers. Don't be surprised if Mr. Rizzo sticks around New York for a long time, as he led the Yankees back in the eighth inning, as they defeated the Marlins, 3-1 Sunday afternoon. Thanks much in part to their new acquisitions, New York swept the three-game series from Miami and finished the road trip at 6-4.

Year after year, Matt would come “home” to Bethlehem and work with the local baseball teams not for money. He was just being a good guy. Quatraro will be a major league manager in the next few years. His name is constantly mentioned in big league managerial searches. There are only 30 of those jobs in the world. Pretty cool representative of the 518.

The New York Yankees have seemingly turned around a season that got off to a pretty awful start after going 7 - 2 in their last homestand. The Yankees haven't lost a series since they were swept by the Tampa Bay Rays in a three-game series from April 16th - 18th. So even though things have been good it'll be a major boost if First Baseman Luke Voit comes in hot tonight in his return from the Injured List when the Yankees begin a three-game midweek series in Tampa versus those same Rays.
