With the Cardinals winning the World Series last night, and another Molina guaranteed a ring, the Mets must now begin their push to hopefully re-sign Jose Reyes.
The Mets have exclusive negotiating rights until Thursday at 12:01 a.m. Then it turns into a free-for-all, and all 29 teams may begin pursuing the shortstop.
Coach Carter Back At It
Gary Carter's daughter, Kimmy Bloemers, wrote in a recent online journal entry that Carter helped coach the Palm Beach Atlantic University baseball team this past week.
"Later in the day, my husband and my dad drove down to Miami so dad could coach his guys for a fall game. Dad's body did not allow him to coach at 100% but his mind was sharp and he enjoyed calling the plays. Dad absolutely loves to be THE SKIPPER. After many hours coaching, dad was exhausted but we were all proud of him for being there for his team."First Base Coach
According to Adam Rubin, the Mets plan to announce the hiring of a new first base coach on Monday. Rubin's sources believe the Mets have picked former Major League outfielder Tom Goodwin. Goodwin has been working with the Boston Red Sox as their minor league baserunning and outfield coordinator.
