My Take On Mark Cuban’s, Oops I Mean Fred Wilpon’s Comments
The reality is that Wilpon had Wright defined ideally: Great kid, but no superstar player. But that truth should be left for people like me to tell. It is simply ungrateful sounding from this owner.
What went through Wilpon’s brain when he made these comments? Did he think anything positive would come out of this?
If the owner is saying that his players are worthless why should any other team think that they are worth acquiring?
The only thing that Wilpon got dead on in my eyes was referring to himself as a schmuck. The only thing that could have come out of this was to piss the players and the fan base off; and guess what? Mission Accomplished.
If baseball is so against having Mark Cuban as an owner, why are we allowing Wilpon to act just like him?
Wilpon’s comments such as “Shitty team”, “Lousy ballclub” and “Snakebitten” were completely uncalled for and hopefully out of anger from the 5-13 start to the season. But if they were premeditated, then Wilpon really needs to put his wrinkly foot in his mouth because if he wants to know one of the big reasons why we are “snakebitten”, then he should look in the mirror.
After such unprofessional comments, why would anyone want to play for an owner that just bitches and moans through the hard times and blames everyone else.
The team is only two games under .500 in late May, a lot of season left, and coming into such an uncertain year, I would say they do not deserve such comments based on their performance.
Fred, theres no crying in baseball, so shut up and sell the team if you don’t like it, you would be doing the franchise a big solid.
