Buck Showalter says he’d like to be considered for the Mets’ managerial opening, although he admits he’s uncomfortable publicly campaigning for it.
“Yeah, I’d like to be talked about it, but I’m not going to campaign about it, and I’m real uncomfortable even talking about it with you now because there’s a lot of good people out there and they’re going to make a good decision,” Showalter said. “They’ll have reasons why and why not, and, you know, I respect that.”
Showalter, 63, has 20 years of major league managerial experience with the Yankees, Diamondbacks, Rangers and Orioles. The three-time AL Manager of the Year has led teams to 11 winning seasons, five postseason appearances and three division championships. He, however, has never guided a club to the World Series.
