    The New York Mets have agreed to a deal to retain Jerry Manuel as manager, FoxSports.com and SI.com are reporting.

    Manuel, who took over for Willie Randolph when Randolph was fired in June, got a two-year contract with a club option for a third season, the Web sites reported.

    The Mets were 34-35 at the time of Randolph's firing but rebounded to finish 55-38 under Manuel. However, they blew a 3-game lead in the NL East over the final weeks and were eliminated from playoff contention on the last day of the season.

    I heard that Minaya said Manuel will be obtained, however he did not make it clear if it would be as manager or coach.

    A Bobby Valentine "being interested in the Mets job if available" rumor has surfaced last night.

    I hope that the Mets pursue this HARD. I have said from the get go, I do not like Jerry Manuel, he is a clown and reminds me a lot of Herm Edwards in his pressers, too loosey-goosey for me.

    No problem with this. Manuel was fine this year, he was sabotaged by the worst bullpen in baseball.
