Joe Girardi wants to manage again, and the Mets are going to pick his brain.
The former Yankees manager and current television analyst is “sure to get” an in-person interview with the Mets for their vacant manager position, according to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman.
Heyman reports the Mets are conducting phone interviews before deciding which people they’ll meet face-to-face. It appears, though, that the Mets have keen interest in Girardi and he will not have to go through that initial phase.
Girardi is reportedly interviewing with the Cubs on Wednesday for their open managerial position.
The Mets fired Mickey Callaway last week after two disappointing seasons. The Post previously reported the Mets started contacting candidates.
