This was LOOOONG overdue.

New York Mets to remove Jerry Manuel, GM Omar Minaya, sources say

    NEW YORK -- General manager Omar Minaya's and manager Jerry Manuel's tenures with the New York Mets in their current positions likely will be over after this weekend, sources told

    Multiple team officials said no announcement is planned until after the regular season's completion Sunday.

You can only play the "injuries" card so many times before it stops becoming an excuse. I never thought Manuel was a good idea in the first place, so I'm not surprised he got the axe. And considering that Minaya was a central figure in the Willie Randolph fiasco, the Mets' collapses in the next two years, and the baffling Jason Bay contract, I'm really surprised that he survived this long.

Having said that, isn't it time to completely clean house on the Mets' medical staff? Something HAS to be wrong there if they're constantly riddled with injuries.

Good riddance. I just hope the Wilpons will eat some humble pie and ask Bobby V to come back to manage the team.

Jerry Manuel is a historically bad manager and Omar might be a good scout but a terrible gm. He surrounded a pretty good core group of 4-5 guy with dreck. Poor Wright and Reyes have seen part of their prime pissed away. Would love to get Bobby V back but the Wilponzi's are hellbent on drunken wifebeater Wally Backman being the manager.

I'm a happy fella if Williamson is the set-up man in the late 7th and 8th and Foulke comes in to shut the door.
