Goodwin the new 1st Base coach

UP DATE: As I was completing this post the Mets made it official Goodwin is the new 1st Base coach.

Reports indicate that the Mets will announce a first base coach on Monday.  Adam Rubin believes it could be Tom Goodwin could have been offered the job.  The Mets needed a coach with expertise in outfield and base running coaching, both of which are Goodwin's areas. 

Goodwin, 43, most recently has served for the past three sesaons as minor league outfield and baserunning coordinator for the Boston Red Sox -- the areas the first base coach with the Mets would be responsible for overseeing. source ESPN NY
