Mets name Tom Goodwin as their first base coach

The Mets continued revamping their coaching staff on Saturday, naming Tom Goodwin their first-base coach. Goodwin, 43, was the minor league outfield and base-running coordinator for the Boston Red Sox for the last three seasons.

He replaces Mookie Wilson, who was removed from the post this month and was offered an opportunity to remain with the club in another capacity.

Among the previously named new members of the Mets’ staff for 2012 are Tim Teufel, who managed the organization’s Class AAA team in Buffalo, as third-base coach; Ricky Bones, who was the pitching coach in Buffalo, as bullpen coach; and Bob Geren, the former manager of the Oakland Athletics, as bench coach.

Dave Hudgens, the hitting coach, and Dan Warthen, the pitching coach, were retained by the Mets.

Mets Looking at Bob Geren for Bench Coach, Not Larry Bowa

The Mets are making progress in its search for a bench coach, according to NJ Star Ledger..

One candidate,  former Washington Nationals manager Jim Riggleman interviewed yesterday. Another candidate,  former Oakland Athletics manager Bob Geren will interview later this week, while Larry Bowa is not considered a candidate.

When the Mets axed Ken Oberkfell last week, part of a major shake-up to the big-league staff, team officials explained they were looking for a bench coach with big-league experience to complement Collins. Bowa spent three seasons on Collins’ staff with the Anaheim Angels in the late 1990s.

Today, the MLB Network reported that Bowa would interview. Bowa, the fiery former manager in San
Diego and Philadelphia, works as an analyst for the network.

Terry Collins says his whole coaching staff will return intact

Terry Collins told the Daily News his recommendation is for his entire coaching staff to return intact. Hitting coach Dave Hudgens has a two-year deal. As for pitching coach Dan Warthen, the lone remaining member of the 2010 staff, Collins said: "Danny has done an excellent job. He gets them ready. He is sharp. It's a good situation when the players like the coaches. They have fun. They laugh. They have great communication with each other. That helps a lot. ... I do think they should all be back. They all did a great job, and there is something to be said for stability."
