Mets Shake Up Coaching Staff After Dismal Season

The New York Mets have shuffled their coaching staff after the team slumped to a fourth-place finish in the NL East this season.

The Mets announced Monday that first base coach Luis Alicea will not be back next season and bench coach Sandy Alomar Sr. will be offered another position in the organization. Third base coach Razor Shines and catching instructor Sandy Alomar Jr. will remain with the staff but will have different roles.

Hitting coach Howard Johnson, pitching coach Dan Warthen and bullpen coach Randy Niemann will be back in their same positions next season.

The injury-riddled Mets finished with a 70-92 record, its worst since going 66-95 in 2003.
