I think adam jones is actually a good guess
How would Adam Jones be "exciting" and "headline grabbing", much less be a "tricky negotiation" for the role of a bench coach?

The latter part leads me to believe it's someone currently employed by another team or otherwise under contract...

...or someone who's quirky and will have weird asks of the Mets in some way. Probably a former ballplayer.

...Larry Jones?!

ETA: I love, no wait, I REALLY love that this board Autocorrects C-H-I-P-P-E-R Jones to "Larry" Jones

Clayton McCollough...the headlines is that we stole a coach from the Dodgers

DeRosa was actually my next guess. Has shown past interest in coaching and the tricky negotiation could be his contract with MLBN. Worked with Showalter at MLBN so there is some connection too.

any player who made an all star team and retired less than 30 years ago could be considered exciting

Rusty Kuntz from KC maybe. He might be a first base coach . Would be interesting (especially bc Nimmo is on first base a lot) the Nimmo Kuntz jersey's next to each other so often

Doug Glanville would be pretty interesting, the guy's really intelligent, no evidence he ever sought any kind of coaching role in MLB though

Tommy LaSorda - yeah, he's dead but negotiations would be tricky and it would certainly grab headlines.

Other than that, Fonzie.
