Darryl Strawberry's new role, career counselor for Jose Reyes

According to the Washington Post:

Darryl Strawberry has some advice for Jose Reyes: Stay in New York.

Reyes can become a free agent after the season, so he might be playing his final few games with the Mets. Strawberry, the club’s career leader in home runs and RBIs, was in a similar position back in 1990 as a homegrown star about to hit the open market in his prime.

New York Mets’ Jose Reyes points to teammate Willie Harris after Reyes scored on a two-run single by Harris during the ninth inning of a baseball game Thursday, Sept. 22, 2011, in St. Louis. The Mets won 8-6.

Fed up with management, Strawberry bolted to sign with his hometown team, the Los Angeles Dodgers. He made his eighth and final All-Star squad the following year before his career was derailed by drugs, alcohol and legal trouble.

“It’s a tough situation to be in. I know if I had to do it all over again, I would have stayed,” Strawberry said. “It looks good on the other side, but it’s not always as good as a place that you’re used to. When you’re young, you don’t realize that. For me, I was young and didn’t realize what New York meant to me. Tell Jose I said New York is a great place. I mean, a great place. No matter what, it’s a great place to play. No matter what you have to go through, how difficult it gets, this is the place where you want to play.”

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) – Wally Backman was passed over for Terry Collins as the next manager of the New York Mets during the off-season, but the fiery Double-A manager still has a firm believer in Darryl Strawberry.

“Wally will be the next manager of the Mets, in my opinion,” Strawberry said before Tuesday night’s Baseball Assistance Team dinner at Midtown’s Marriot Marquis. “I don’t have much to say, but I thought he would’ve been the right choice for them.

“Not taking anything away from Terry. He’s a great man, and I think he’ll probably do a great job turning these guys around. But I think Wally’s in the future, as far as the manager, and I think he’ll be a super manager.”

Backman was among four finalists last fall to replace Jerry Manuel as Mets manager.

Collins was hired over Backman, Chip Hale and Bob Melvin.
