July 17, 2007 Definitely knew this was going to happen. This is going to be a future manager in the making. You read it here first. He accepted to play in the minors and was able to mentor the upcoming pitchers and players. Down in New Orleans, he was batting over .300 and there was a need within the organization. Although he's 40, some may say "another old player", but Sandy is different, realizes his role and is willing to do whatever it takes to simply win. He's a spirited individual. Although his brother, Robbie didn't work out, this Alomar will.
February 23, 2008 Has just been named the Mets' new catching instructor.
March 2, 2009 Why do I think that somehow, some way Sandy Alomar Jr. will find himself on the playing roster some time this year?
And his catch against the screen against the Dodgers in August, 2007 was one of the best made by a backstop that season (according to ESPN). Not bad for a guy who appeared in only eight games that year.
