Mets minority owner could bring Valentine back

While it's a long shot, Bobby Valentine's next managing job in MLB could be with his ex-team in the Mets.

SI.com's Jon Heyman notes that two of the final three candidates to become minority owners of the Mets in Steve Cohen and Anthony Scaramucci are major fans of Bobby Valentine and could angle to have him become the new skipper.

Of course, the Mets already have a new manager in Terry Collins, so that would represent an uphill climb. But if a change has to be made in the next few years, Heyman writes that a "vocal limited partner" could bring Valentine's name back and play and perhaps overcome owner Fred Wilpon's resistance in bringing back Valentine after firing him in 2002.

Valentine was asked about the possibility on Sunday night, to which he replied "Why would I want to do that? I have a great job.''

Still, it's widely believed Valentine will eventually manage a team in the next couple years.

Please, Mets, PLEEEAAAASSSEEEE...bring Bobby Valentine back as a manager.

Then I can watch Sunday night baseball again.  Because I won't watch as long as that jerk is part of the team.

I'd rather listen to Tim McCarver tell us "when the leadoff man of an inning hits a home run, the chances of a multi-run inning are higher than if he doesn't" than Valentine.

PLEASE bring him back Mets. I am tired of hearing his dumbass on ESPN mess up something EVERY minute. No kidding. This guy can't put together a competent sentence. And if he does, it takes him 20 minutes. He is annoying to boot. Fits New York perfectly.

Missing Willie absolutely not,while Randolph done a good job he definitely had lost the team when he was fired.And if the baseball world felt Willie was the be all and end all he'd have gotten another managers job.Now off you go and make your mischief somewhere else.

Neither Joe McCarthy, Casey Stengel, Connie Mack, or Jesus Christ could get this half-talented, overrated bunch of misfits to win.  Gimme' a break!  So it's the manager now that's the problem with them being exactly what they are, a last place team.  It's talent, chemistry and heart that makes winners, and the Mets have none of the ingredients. Bobby Valentine is also an absolute moron.  Listen to that idiot during ESPN's broadcast.  This story reminds me of the love affair that Dolan has with Isiah Thomas.  What is it with these idiots?  As a Phils fan, go ahead and hire Valentine!  That way, I can be assured that the Mutts will be nothing for years and years and years and......It will be the Nats in a few years after the Phils window closes.

Are we still blaming this pathetic run over the last few years from best team in the NL to worst on the manager? Perhaps you need a guy who could maybe get a hit in a big spot? And a bullpen? And a rotation? Then worry about the manger. Seems like Willie Randolph was a pretty good fit. Miss him yet Mets fans?

The "author" above is a joke.  This "article" is a total piece of garbage. CBS Sportsline is getting worse by the day. How old is this guy, 11?
