My favorite Mets manager of all time is Bobby V. I love how much he wants to win, and how much he doesn't mind talking about how much he knows about baseball. Like Muhammed Ali said, "it ain't bragging if it's true,"
After Bobby V was fired and replaced with Art Howe, and the Mets stunk just as badly, I showed up at Shea with a sign that read "See? It Wasn't Bobby V's Fault!" We had second row seats beside the visitors dugout so my sign was very visible. A security guard made me take it down, even though he didn't understand what the sign meant.
"Is that a negative sign?"
"Bobby Valentine wouldn't think so," I replied.
He made me take it down anyway.
