It is win now mode for the Mets and the next manager of the team will go a long way in making that happen. I think it was clear that Luis Rojas was a little out of his element as the team's skipper but now is the time to bring in a proven guy. I really want our local guy Matt Quatraro to win over the Mets but I don't see the new GM taking a flyer on a guy especially when his job as the decision maker for the franchise hangs in the balance. What I do know is Buck Showalter is a 3 time AL Manager of the Year and he earned those in 3 different decades! Mike Puma explains above how the interview went for Buck and we discuss much more about the Metropolitans. Make sure to listen.

Joseph Girard III is off to a good at Syracuse this season. The former Glens Falls standout is consistently connecting on his deep three point shots, and he has drastically cut down on his turnovers this season the point guard position. Girard looks like a player in his third season of action, because he has matured a lot on the court. Not sure how far Syracuse will go this season, but Girard is an important piece to the success, and with Jimmy and Buddy Boeheim capable of putting up big numbers offensively, Syracuse could be a tough out. If Syracuse can become a better rebounding team, they will win a bunch of games in the ACC Conference.
