MLB’s most interesting people in ‘15

Which executives, managers and players will drive the MLB narrative in the coming season? Here’s a look at the 15 most interesting people in baseball heading into 2015:

1. Rob Manfred
After an extended run as Bud Selig’s most trusted aide, Manfred takes center stage in late January as baseball’s 10th commissioner. He’ll try to maintain the momentum that has made baseball a $9 billion industry while setting an agenda on pace of play, changes in the draft and free-agent compensation system, and MLB’s efforts to reach out to a younger fan base. Manfred also needs to connect with Tony Clark and the players’ association while navigating the usual array of ownership labor hawks and doves in negotiations toward a new collective bargaining agreement in 2016.

2. Alex Rodriguez
Where do we start? A-Rod, who missed the entire 2014 season with a drug suspension, turns 40 in July. He’s six homers shy of tying Willie Mays’ total of 660 and collecting a $6 million bonus on top of the $61 million the Yankees already owe him. But the Yankees just signed third baseman Chase Headley to a four-year deal—yet another sign that they want Rodriguez to go away. Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter were universally revered at the end of their runs in the Bronx. The reception won’t be quite as fawning when the most polarizing figure in baseball reports to Steinbrenner Field for duty in February.

They don’t always drink beer. But when they do, its Dos Equis. Wait, is that a centaur joke?

How NY Mets could avoid a Matt Harvey shutdown in 2015 - NY Daily News

The Mets are hoping to contend in 2015, and do not want Matt Harvey to become this year’s Stephen Strasburg, shut down for a playoff run. And while internal discussions about a plan for Harvey next year are in the very early stages, several creative approaches are possible.

NY Daily News: Terry Collins’ future with NY Mets has become tough to read

Also, Matt Harvey will throw a few more bullpen sessions and then be shut down, and some Grim LeRogue wannabe can’t talk to Justin Turner.

Unsure about the Mets leadership situation? Join the club. As someone whose job is to report on these things, I’d like to relay that the signs emanating from the organization are foggier than in recent years, and that in itself is interesting.

It’s not just reporters who are unsure. There seems to be genuine internal debate and uncertainty over what the team will do; as one well-connected Mets official put it, “I just can’t get a feel for what’s going to happen this time.”

Added another Mets person, on Collins’ chances to return: “I think we have a ways to go before that’s decided.”...

The manager has his backers in the organization, and he has his detractors; both sides seem still to be discussing the future. I still believe that there is a slight lean toward the status quo, but also that the atypical lack of clarity is telling. In other words: It should be an interesting month.

“You wonder if this comes down to a five-game losing streak, or five-game winning streak,” said one major league official in touch with Mets people.
