Word was Wally was in the running for a coaching gig with the Nats and his old skipper Davey Johnson.
Hey I’d hate to lose Wally just cuz I love him as an ‘86 Met but I wouldn’t blame the gut if he bounced for another gig. There’s no telling how long it might take to get the managerial job here in NY and I have doubts the Wilpons would ever hand him the keys.
Personally I think Wally’s be great for a couple of years at which point he might flame out but I’d sign for that any day.
As for the bench coach search, unless Larry Bowa is in the mix, or Wally, I’m fairly unconcerned about this job opening.
TC is an experienced Major League manager and has proved adept at handling NYC. Bench coach was a huge issue when we had the inexperienced and often NL oblivious Willie Randolph but I’ve got no such concerns with Collins.
