According to Jon Heyman, the talks between the Mets and manager Jerry Manuel have hit a bump, and talks may be off for the weekend. It is believed that the Mets made a two year offer to Manuel, but the sides differed on money. "We are in discussions right now with Jerry. We'll probably continue to talk to him," Minaya said. Manuel did a very good job for the Mets despite failing to make the playoffs. They went 55-38 with him while seeing the resurgence of Carlos Delgado and Mike Pelfrey.
Manuel could look into other jobs if the Mets do not give him a contract he is looking for, but why would he go from the Mets to the Mariners or Rangers?
