Interesting interview by Mike Francessa (WFAN-NY) of DeRosa about DeRosa's experience being interviewed by Mets.  Says he wasn't really prepared, was hurt by not coming in with a plan for the team, considers himself a leader of men, isn't really prepared from "nuts and bolts" of day-to-day managing, may need to get mgr/bench experience first, but was ultimately disappointed he didn't get the job.  Worth a listen if you are intrigued by the possibility of him managing someday, as I am. 

This is a good reminder the only reason I'd have been okay with Cora is he had a year on the bench.

DeRosa could come in tomorrow and manage 9 innings of baseball, but I want someone who has experience before the first pitch and after the last out. This is a win now team. We don't need someone learning on the job.
