Hey Mets Fans,  did you ever wonder who Dave Jauss was?

He was the current bench coach for the New York Mets in 2010.

And why are thinking about hiring him as manager?

According to Baseball Prospectus:

When the Mets hired Dave Jauss to be their bench coach, they brought on board a true baseball man.

The 53-year-old Jauss has spent his entire adult life in the game, performing a cornucopia of roles for a multitude of organizations. After getting his feet wet in independent ball and the college ranks, the Amherst College grad spent three years as a minor-league manager in the Expos system before moving on to the Red Sox, for whom he served as a first base coach, minor-league field coordinator, bench coach, director of player development, and major-league advance scout. From Boston he went to Los Angeles, where he was Grady Little's bench coach with the Dodgers in 2006 and 2007.

For each of the past two seasons, he performed the same role under Dave Trembley, in Baltimore. Jauss, who was hired by the Mets in November, talked about his time in the game during the final month of the 2009 campaign.
