While the two sides have never gotten close, I am one of those Mets fans who would love to see Bobby back behind the bench in Flushing one day, and this is exactly why.

For now though, I'll take pleasure in watching him ruffle the feathers of Yankees fans for the foreseeable future and look forward to some more colorful comments throughout the season for sure.
