After his introductory press conference on Friday afternoon, Luis Rojas spoke to SNY's Steve Gelbs about his emotions on becoming the manager of the Mets.
"It's a birth of emotions," Rojas said. "I'm going crazy with the situation right now. The New York Mets manager, it's something that I've dreamed.
"When things unfolded for me to be a coach, and I landed with this organization in 2006, I saw how everything was so detailed. My dream was to manage the New York Mets at one point. I knew it was going to take a lot. I was always proud to be a coach in the organization, I was always proud to be a manager in the minor leagues. And I was even more proud when I was on the coaching staff last year, but this is still a dream come true for me. And I'm willing to look forward and compete with the rest of the guys on the staff in this season."
