    We have a manager! Luis Rojas comes with 3 seasons managing the Mets A team (Savannah), 1 year at St Lucie (A+) and 2 seasons at Binghamton. Could be wrong, but don't think so, the FO wouldn't have kept and advanced Rojas over 7 years if he were stumbling around clueless. Another plus is having Hensley Meulens at his side and a complete coaching staff at St Lucie prepping for pitchers and catchers.

    Lets Go Mets

      What I find interesting is he reportedly came in third during the last round behind Beltran and Eduardo Perez. Why the leap over Eduardo at this stage? The word back then was that the FO didn't think he was quite ready for the majors. What changed between then and now?

        Nothing. BVW provided an answer designed not to offend Rojas who was younger than Perez. As I wrote in my previous post the organization considers Rojas as an asset and didn't want him looking for greener grass. Perez is not and never was attached to the Mets and probably wouldn't be interested in any position other than Manager. Perez is still in the running for the Astro's job along with Showalter and Baker

          per Andy Martino:

          Mets are seeking a new quality control coach to replace Luis Rojas. Also the team is returning Jim Kelly from pro scout to replay coordinator
          Replay Coordinator? Sounds like the perfect job for Carlos Beltran and company...is he still on the payroll?

            Not exactly, his only strength was picking up the catcher's signs, word on the street is he was terrible on HR replays and safe/out calls at a base!

ID:	10160The Mets are naming Brian Schneider their new quality control coach, reports SNY's Andy Martino.

                Schneider will fill the role that was vacated when Luis Rojas became manager.

                The 43-year-old Schneider had initially been hired earlier this offseason to manage Triple-A Syracuse, so the Mets will now need to fill that vacancy.

                Schneider will serve as a conduit between the front office, coaching staff and players on issues including game preparation, strategy and analytics. He will also oversee catching instruction.

                "Brian is a welcome addition to our coaching staff," Rojas said in a statement. "He has been in a major league uniform as a player and as a coach for the better part of the last two decades and his insight will be a valuable tool as he communicates ideas between our front office, myself, his fellow coaches and our players."

                Schneider, who most recently worked for the Marlins as their catching coach, managed the Jupiter Hammerheads in the Florida State League in 2014.

                He spent two seasons with the Mets during his 13-year big league career, hitting .243/.323/.356 with 12 homers in 169 games spanning 2008 and 2009.

                Schneider, who was represented by then-agent Brodie Van Wagenen during his playing career, also played for the Expos/Nationals and Phillies, retiring after the 2012 season.

                While announcing the Schneider promotion, the Mets also announced that Tony DeFrancesco will assume outfield coaching duties in addition to his current roles as first base coach and baserunning instructor.
