It might actually wake up Hal Steinbrenner (and help Yankees) if Mets hire Buck Showalter | Klapisch (msn.com)
Thought this was a nice and well written article about Buck, hopefully, getting the manager job with the Mets. I always thought he was too strict with the Yanks and Arizona too, but that he did work miracles with the O's. Perhaps he has mellowed since then, maybe helped by a few years in the booth. I wish him well with the Mets although my guess is that once again, their success will come after he retires.
As for spurring Hal to do something to regain the back pages from the Mets, that appears to me to be wishful thinking. Reason is Hal does not read the back pages or the box scores or follow fantasy teams.
