Buck Showalter was the perfect hire for the Mets. This franchise badly needed a voice in the dugout that has been there before, that has managed in the big leagues and on the biggest stage.
Showalter has managed in New York and has won over 1,500 games in his career.
“It was Buck’s ability to connect to a wide range of people, his drive to compete, his curiosity blended with his experience and his overall adaptability that led us to naming him the manager of the New York Mets,” said GM Billy Eppler said.
He is the guy that can get the Mets to the promised land. Can Buck Showalter lead the Mets to a World Series title in his three years at the helm? It’s quite possible!
