No, they shouldn't.

And Keith Hernandez. Make it the Mets Troika.

I can see Cora moving into the FO at some point.

Yeah, Cora seems like an FO guy in waiting (though his first year as a manager has gone moderately well so far). Darling seems smart enough and I wouldn't be surprised if he'd do well in the front office but I wouldn't want him as the primary decision maker without some experience first.

Cora used to be the GM and field manager of the Caguas Criollos in P.R. for about 20 years so there's that.

The Mets should also consider Manfred, as he would surely consider it.

Nicely done. I chuckled.

I'd almost rather have an ace broadcaster than an ace GM at this point.

Yes, Cora will definitely want to trade John Henry for the Wilpons as his boss.
