Wilpon: Omar is back next year

The mysterious Mets owner Fred Wilpon has spoken. In a one question interview with the New York Post, he was asked about Omar Minaya's future with the team. "Am I going to bring Omar back next year?" Wilpon said. "Absolutely. That's a fact."

While that may not be the thing Mets fans want to hear, at least it provides stability and no longer raises the question as to who will be leading the Mets. Maybe.

If you remember, Wilpon said the same thing about Willie Randolph, just two days before he was fired. But, I'm going to take Wilpon's word on this one.

When asked about Wilpon's comments, Omar Minaya remained coy, but said that if he's coming back, so is manager Jerry Manuel. "Jerry is my guy," Minaya said. "We work well together."
