Despite a disastrous season, the New York Mets are expected to bring back general manager Omar Minaya for the 2010 MLB season.
The New York Post reported Sunday that owner Fred Wilpon said Minaya will return in 2010 despite the failings of his $136 million team on and off the field this year.
Minaya in turn told the newspaper that if he's back, manager Jerry Manuel will return as well.
The Mets have been victimized by an unusual rash of injuries, errors and overall poor play this season. Entering play on Sunday, the Mets were 10 games below .500, 15.5 games back of the Philadelphia Phillies in the NL East and were just 23-36 on the road.
Knowing that the Mets stand little chance for a bounce back, oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com currently list New York as a massive 175/1 long shot to win the 2009 World Series. The Mets are also 90/1 long shots to win the NLCS.
