Although his heavily favored Mets lost the National League championship series to the Dodgers, Manager Davey Johnson will be offered a new 2-year contract, according to the Associated Press.

Johnson’s job status has been in doubt since the final day of the 1987 season. General Manager Frank Cashen, who has quarreled with his manager, announced at the time that Johnson would step down at the end of 1988 when his 3-year contract ended and remain with the team in another role.

“I don’t want to leave with this bad taste in my mouth,” Johnson said Wednesday night after the Dodgers beat the Mets, 6-0, in Game 7.
