Wally Backman will not return to 51s next season according to Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson. Wally Backman will move on and pursue other interests.
After dropping 2 of 3 to St.Louis and 1st game of 4 game series with Rockies Mets find themselves 6.5 games behind Nationals and 1.5 games behind Marlins for 2nd Wild Card spot. This is a very different team that made its run to the World Series last year they have a lot of weaknesses and don’t hit with runners in scoring position and losing David Wright and Matt Harvey for the season did not help matters. They need to get hot soon or it be a very quiet August and September at Citi Field.
