Four Men Enter, One Man Manages: Alderson Says Mets Manager Will Be Decided In The Thunderdome

The Mets have a Gold Level Press Conference scheduled for Tuesday to announce their next manager but the decision has not been finalized.  Yesterday, Alderson announced he planned to hire all four as some kind of super-manager but Mets ownership shot him down saying that they would not pay for three extra managers.

Facing a four way tie for the job and unable to make a decision, the Mets new GM has decided to take the decision out of his hands and put it squarely in the hands of the men vying for the job.  His idea: a four way death-match at Citi Field on Sunday.

“These men have been fighting for this job since day one.”, said Alderson. “In the end, who am I to not give them the chance to literally fight for it.”

On Sunday afternoon, a steel dome or “thunderdome” will be set up in the parking lot of Citi Field.  Various weapons will be placed in the cage.  The four managerial candidates will enter and the last one standing will be given the job.

While Vegas has Backman as the odds-on favorite, fans should be careful not to count out Chip Hale.  Earlier this year, Hale was in a convenience store when an armed robber attempted to hold up the store.  The robber never walked again.

Tickets to the deathmatch will be sold on and at 718-507-TIXX. The Mets however were pleased to announce that fans who renew their season or plan tickets by close of business on Saturday, will receive a complimentary pair of VIP tickets to the bloodbath as part the Amazin’ Mets Perks program.
