Jerry Manuel is as cool as a cucumber.
Manuel's optimism during the home stretch of the baseball season has the Metropolitans October Dreaming. The never negative Mets coach is reminiscent of the Great Joe Torre. Good ol' Cool Joe. Jerry has kept it cool in New York despite recent Media Heat of yet another late season implosion. Thursday night in the middle of a 9th inning meltdown a young rookie (Daniel Murphy) misses a sign and bunts foul for the fourth time and the first out. Once in the Dugout Jerry pulled the young Murphy aside and put his arm around him to let him know everything was going to be okay. Mets win 2 batters later.
