Davey Johnson says he is convinced he is out as manager of the New York Mets, according to a published report.

"They're not bringing me back," Johnson is quoted as saying in Tuesday's editions of the New York Times."They haven't told me that, but they should have," Johnson said. "They're probably waiting so they can confirm my replacement. And there is somebody available in the organization: Bud Harrelson, who's popular in New York."

The Times said Joe McIlvaine, the Mets' vice president for baseball operations, denied that a decision had been made and that one is not expected to be reached until the end of the week or later.

Johnson, 46, has been the most successful manager in the Mets' 28-year history, with a 575-395 won-loss record for his six years.
