I think it is pretty safe to say now that the Mets will be looking for a new manger at the end of this season.  It has not been all Jerry Manuel's fault, injuries and unmeet expectations have really held the Mets back over these last two seasons.  So, who is going to be the next manager of this team?  People have thrown out names like Wally Backman, Bob Melvin, and Bobby Valentine as potential replacements.  No matter who the replacement ends up being, that person has a lot of work to do to get this team turned around.

With that all being said, I'd like to put my hat in the ring.  I have written a cover letter detailing my qualifications for the Mets managerial position in hopes of being considered by the Wilpons.  Below is the cover letter I have created:

Christopher J. Matcovich

31 Forrest Street           Airmont, NY 10932     (555) 555-5555

 To Mr. Wilpon,

 RE: Mets Managerial Position

                 I am writing in hopes that you would consider me for your soon to be vacant Managerial position with the New York Mets.  I have a strong passion for baseball, and besides that I need a job.  I feel my coaching experience and my strong passion for baseball would be a great fit for your organization.

               I will tell you why I am the man to resurrect this franchise and bring them to glory once again.  First, unlike the current manager, I can put a sentence together that is not bookended with the phrases “Uhhhhhhh” and “hahahahah”.  As for my experience, I’m considered the Connie Mack of youth baseball in the Lower Hudson Valley.  Last summer I led the 13U Suffern Titans to a 13-5-1 record and to the Northern Valley Independence Day Tournament Championship.    I’d like to say the kids were a huge part of this success, but when you’re stealing signs and providing the pitchers with Vaseline it’s hard to make that statement.   Oh, I almost forgot about my playing days.  Where do I begin?  I made my first Little League All-Star team at 13 years old and it looked like I would be going to play ball at good ole STATE at that pace.  Then at age 17, when I was trying to leg out a grounder to the shortstop, I came up gimp.  I was told it was plantar fasciitis; my career was over almost as quickly as Alyssa Miliano’s show “Romantically Challenged”.

                 Thanks for reviewing my application, but I don’t see this as being a hard decision for the team with my level of qualifications (besides I couldn’t be any worse than Dallas Green, Art Howe, Willie Randolph, or Jerry Manual).  So why don’t you give me a call next week and we can talk numbers.  Thanks.

 Sincerely,

Christopher J. Matcovich  

Whoever takes over as Mets manager next season, needs to change the culture surrounding the team at this moment.  The Mets cannot continue to be as streaky as they have been this season.  Instilling consistency in this ball club, is the only way to bring winning back to Flushing.
