Serious Problems With Mets Organization

An article by posted on May 4, 2009

Curious? Yes I am bringing this up because I am tired of talking about the players too.

Here it is so simply a child can understand it:

People placed in power are afraid of their higher-ups.

Did you catch that?

No?

I’ll say it again for you:

People placed in power are afraid of their higher-ups.

Why?

Well think about it. A lot has happened over the past few days, other than the Oliver Perez story.

We all found out Jerry Manuel wanted to pull Oliver Perez from the rotation awhile ago, but was pressured to keep him there thanks to the front office.

I am getting tired of the front office meddling. It has not done the team any good.

Jerry is the manager. He knows what needs to be done for his players and his team. It’s his team to manage. This is why he is called Manager. What a concept, right?

Omar Minaya is afraid of the Wilpons. This is the only reason I can come up with as to why certain players were not signed no matter how much they can improve the team.

If the Wilpons do not want the players on the team, then Minaya does not sign the player.

It is also probably a reason why Minaya would backtrack from his comments that the team lacks an edge. I’m sure that is something the Wilpons do not want to hear about their precious ballclub.

The GM and Manager need to tell their respective higher-ups to butt out.

I know! It sounds easier than it actually is, but it does make you think and wonder what this team would really be like if they did.

If Minaya really had control like he wanted, don’t you think Manny Ramirez would’ve been signed? Maybe Derek Lowe too.

Don’t bring up the Madoff scandal. It would’ve happened this way despite it.

If Jerry was actually allowed to manage his team and not be managed himself, we would not be seeing Perez in the rotation right now.

I think it is rather sad that the people who get paid to manage the club, are managed themselves. Actually, maybe calling them puppets would be a better word.

Bottom line, please pardon the crude expression: These men need to grow a set.

If they did, the team would be somewhat better for it.
