How the developing partnership between Carlos Mendoza and John Gibbons will dictate this Mets season


PORT ST. LUCIE — John Gibbons considers the Mets’ new manager to be so prepared that he probably doesn’t even need a bench coach.

Given that Carlos Mendoza just entered his first spring training as a major league manager, Gibbons’ assessment could be considered extreme.

But Mendoza’s apprenticeship over the past four seasons with the Yankees, where he served as a bench coach under Aaron Boone, may have given him all the practical experience needed for his new project.

If anything, it might be the experienced Gibbons — hired by the Mets in November to serve as Mendoza’s bench coach — who fits best in this new partnership.
