Bethlehem’s Quatraro is the Mets Right Choice Not the Safe One
Bethlehem’s Quatraro is the Mets Right Choice Not the Safe One
Matt Quatraro has been in professional baseball for 24 years. 16 of those seasons have been coaching. In his early coaching days, Quatraro would spend off-seasons volunteer coaching for the University at Albany Great Danes baseball team. Matt is a smart man. He is easy to be around. He is a team oriented and understands an organization's structure and each individual's role in its success. That is the baseball business today. That's the kind of person, if I had Steve Cohen's bank account, I would have representing my $2.5 billionaire dollar team on the field. Oh, and Matt's a competitor to the core and knows how to win at the Major League Level. Louis Rojas unfortunately didn't have that experience.
A Relationship that Shaped a Hall of Famer
A Relationship that Shaped a Hall of Famer
Sometimes you meet people that change your life. When you are lucky enough to realize it and keep that person in your life, well, then you have something special. About a month ago, I read an article in the New York Times sports section by freelance writer Alex Coffey. The story was about baseball Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson and J.J. Guinn, the police officer/part-time scout that changed Mr. Henderson's life and kept changing it.
