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.
