Have you ever been experienced? – Tim Palladino

After a wild season of questioning what to do with Mickey Callaway and a second-half that almost kept his job, he was relieved of his managerial duties last week. The biggest complaint I had with Callaway was his in-game control. In several games this season, he put in players at strange times and used his bullpen unwisely. That is why I want former Yankees manager Joe Girardi for the Mets.

Though I was not a fan during the Yankees years, I believe he can take the Mets young talent and help them grow. Girardi knows from a young Aaron Judge how to help younger players during this stage. I believe he could help Pete Alonso get even better at-bats.

Girardi would also be helpful in keeping some of the bigger ego players like Noah Syndergaard in line by not taking demands. Most importantly, he may be a part of fixing Edwin Diaz and working him into a better 2020 season. Girardi would have a fair amount of work to do but I believe he is the best man for it.

The time is now to get the right manager for this Mets team. I’d absolutely love Girardi in this position. He has the best experience to take a talented team to the next level.

On the other hand, I am skeptical of other managers rumored to have an interest in the job such as Buck Showalter and Bud Black. I believe their style of baseball wouldn’t go with today’s younger players. They may not be able to relate the same way newer managers can to the players currently suiting up for 162 games a season.
