Mets manager search: Carlos Beltran buzz, Red Sox link, more

A key member of Van Wagenen’s staff involved in the search includes Allard Baird, who spent a decade-plus working in Boston’s front office before departing last offseason to become an assistant GM with the Mets. That connection could put at least two Red Sox coaches in play for the Mets managerial opening: Carlos Febles and Ron Roenicke.

Febles, the Red Sox third base coach, played for the Royals during Baird’s tenure as Royals GM in the 1990s and 2000s. And Baird was instrumental in bringing Febles into the Red Sox organization in 2007. Febles served as a minor league manager in Boston’s system for six seasons before becoming a major league coach.

Roenicke was Alex Cora’s bench coach for last season’s World Series winning team. Roenicke also managed the Brewers to the NLCS in 2011.

Febles is REALLY well regarded around the Sox. The stories on him are very very positive and his work ethic, particularly with infielders, gets a lot of attention.

I loved me some "Dos Carlos" in KC. Febles just had an electric personality and Beltran was so smooth to watch. That '99 team with Febles/Beltran/Dye/Sweeney/Damon - all 25 and under - was more fun than a 97-loss team should be. Appier, Rosado and a bunch of others I was stupidly optimistic about (I have an autographed Dan Reichert card at home if anyone needs one).

"The Beltran Buzz" sounds like a 21st-century version of "The Baseball Bunch"...
