According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Buffalo Bisons manager Wally Backman is expected to join the Mets on Sunday, for the series finale at Citi Field against the Atlanta Braves.  According to Rubin:

“It will mark the second straight season in which Backman has joined the coaching staff for the final month.  Backman’s Triple-A Buffalo squad completes its season this afternoon at Lehigh Valley. He then plans to return to Buffalo, drive his vehicle cross-country to Oregon and fly to New York to join the Mets.”

The only way news of Backman joining the Mets will interest me is if we are blessed with a tirade like the one below (make sure there are no children in the room when watching this video. Wow.)

Seriously. I know there is a large contingent of Mets fans who would love to see Backman managing this team. While he was one of my favorite players growing up, I am very indifferent on the situation. First. I think current manager Terry Collins has done a very admirable job with the club and see no reason why he shouldn’t return to the club next season. Also, I am — and will always be — much more concerned about the players on the roster than I will be about the person managing. That said, I love to write post about Backman because I get to use videos like the one below. Which is #classic
