Here’s the latest in the Mets‘ search for a new manager…

Oct. 11, 5:43 p.m.

In an in-depth interview with The Athletic’s Brittany Ghiroli, long-time manager Buck Showalter was asked about the rumblings that he’d be connected to two of the most popular manager vacancies in the league — the Mets and San Diego Padres.

Showalter admitted if the Mets gave him a call, he’d definitely pick up the phone.

“I don’t talk about jobs that aren’t currently open, so the ones that are, it’s always an honor just to be mentioned,” he said. “They got a lot of good, qualified people to pick from. I don’t know (if I will be asked to interview). That’s not my decision, but I’d listen if they (the Padres or Mets) called. Like I said, it’s an honor just to be mentioned.”

Showalter, who last managed with the Baltimore Orioles in 2018, added that he misses being in the dugout a lot. He’s recently been an analyst with the YES Network.
