“Our guys liked being at the park, our travelling secretary, Mickey Morabito, used to ask. ‘Why are we paying for the team bus?’ Everyone came to the park early on their own, ahead of the bus.”
Howe is the definition of a cromulent manager. He's not bad, but he's not going to blow your mind. He's competent and seems like a nice guy and will bore your pants off if he has one of those Manager shows on the radio.
This was my opinion when the Mets hired him, and it didn't change. I did realize the obvious though-- having a boring manager is really, really dull. Toronto deserves better.
Given the last couple years, I actually wouldn't mind having to deal with a dull but competent manager.
Art Howe is the Bob Geren of managers.
This is what bothers me. As you note, it's not like we had a huge pile of weaknesses in the bullpen, but Aviles would have made a tolerable starting 2B, or a very useful utility guy, and Yan Gomes could have been another useful player as the backup C/3B/1B. Neither player looks destined to be a star, but both could have filled needed roles.

J. P. Ricciardi.
