Will Buck Showalter Bring a World Series Victory to Citi Field?


When Steve Cohen purchased the Mets he stated the Mets would win the World Series within 5 years.  I think he made a good move by hiring Buck Showalter as Manager.  He has had some significant accomplishments in his managerial career.
  • With the Yankees, Showalter ended a 14-year playoff drought
  • With the Orioles, he ended a 15-year drought.
  • With the Diamondbacks, he led them to the playoffs in just their second season.
  • He won the Manager of the Year Award in 1994, 2014, and 2014

The Mets made some significant moves in the off-season before the lock-out and will likely make more transactions once there is a new collective bargaining agreement.  Steve Cohen is certainly willing to spend money, so let's hope Buck will bring a World Series victory to Citi Field in the near future.
