The New York Mets are searching for a new manager. Who do we want and who will they eventually hire?

In case you didn’t hear, the New York Mets are in search for a new manager. Mickey Callaway was fired from his gig after two years shortly after the end of the 2019 season. Now, the search begins for a replacement.

Coming off a far more productive year at least in the standings, Callaway will leave the Mets with the team in a pretty good position. They finished as the best National League team to miss the playoffs. It’s a decent consolation prize, but more importantly, an attractive note Brodie Van Wagenen should be sure to remind any potential candidate.

Thus far, we’ve heard a wide range of potential candidates. They include men with World Series rings, others with amazing reputations, and a few first-timers. Already, some of the candidates have made it clear they want nothing to do with the job. Mostly, they are the ex-Mets players people have some have tried forcing into the job such as Carlos Beltran and Keith Hernandez. The former has actually been more open to it in recent days.

At Rising Apple, we all have our own thoughts as to who the next manager should be. There are also a few candidates we each want nothing to do with.

Unfortunately, we don’t have much power in determining who the actual manager will be. Because of this, our desired choice for the job may not actually be the one we ultimately see the team hire.

I’ve asked a few of our writers to share their thoughts on who they want to manage the Mets next. Along with this, we’re going to share a few predictions about what we believe the team does.
