In what is hopefully the first of many announced moves a number of Big League coaches will not return next year.
Chip Hale left to be a bench coach with the A’s - good luck Chip.
Additionally Oberkfell, Mookie Wilson and Bullpen Coach Jon Debus will not return to the major league club for the 2012 season.
Tim Teufel will takes over 3rd Base and Ricky Bones is new Bullpen Coach.
Hudgens and Dan Warthen are both back.
Mookie will be offered another position in organization… Again. Gotta imagine Mookie is closing in on all time record for “Most Positions Held” “MPH” in franchise history.
There’s some buzz that Larry Bowa may be in line for a bench coach gig with the Mets. I’d give him the job w/o hesitation.
Bowa’s fire, passion and will to win is exactly what the Mets need right now. Bowa has the balls the Mets are lacking.
Bowa may be the only bench coach in baseball who would actually sell some tickets / generate interest.
