Manuel-Bullpen '08

The following message was transmitted electronically to supporters of Jerry Manuel overnight:

Friend —

I have some important news I want to make official.

I've chosen Scott Schoeneweis, Aaron Heilman, Pedro Feliciano, Brian Stokes and Luis Ayala to be my closer.

The bullpen and I will appear as running mates this evening in Flushing, New York — the same place this campaign began more than four months ago.

I'm excited about hitting the ninth-inning trail with the bullpen, but the six of us can't do this alone. We need our entire rotation's and offense's help to keep building this movement for first place.

Please let the five relievers who have recorded saves in Billy Wagner's absence know you're glad they're part of our team. Share your personal welcome note and we'll make sure they get it.

Thanks for your support,

Jerry

P.S. — Make sure to turn on your TV at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time to join us or watch in person at Shea Stadium.

    Eddie Kunz released a statement
    “In naming my colleagues and friends to be the nominees, Mr Manuel has continued in the best traditions for the closer role by selecting exceptionally strong, experienced leaders and devoted teammates. Those men will be purposeful closers who will help Mr. Manuel both win the pennant and a contract extension.”

    Kunz was never fully vetted.
