This afternoon we learned that Omar Minaya has satiated, for the time being, the faithful by throwing the head-still attached to the body of Tony Bernazard to the wolves. As if a suffering Mets fan will rush to their favorite gin mill after work and start celebrating. Who really cares about a behind the scenes guy who has run amok? Of course, its embarrassing, but more to the owners than to the fans. The fans [...]
We are just minutes away from a 3:45 PM press conference at which time Omar Minaya is expected to announce that Mets VP of Player Development, Tony Bernazard has been fired. The NY Post and ESPN have already confirmed the news through their sources. The press conference can be viewed on SNY or heard on WFAN. This news comes as no surprise as Bernazard was under investigation by the Mets in response to a couple [...]
Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away. Now it seems as though they’re here to stay. Oh I believe in yesterday. Suddenly, I’m not half the man I used to be. There’s a shadow hanging over me. Oh yesterday, came suddenly. – The Beatles Omar Minaya has come full circle. His five year tenure is slowly coming to an end, and his five year plan is as distant now as it was in 2004 when [...]
Say what you will about Mets ownership, but one thing they have shown is that they are 100% loyal to G.M. Omar Minaya. Since Carlos Beltran (remember him), was caught looking to end the 2006 playoff run for the Mets, the team has been in a state of steady decline. The Collapse of 2007 is still an open wound to me. The fact that the Mets rolled over and played dead during September was and [...]
I’ve supported Omar Minaya ever since he first took the reins of the New York Mets after the 2004 season. He took an organization that was in complete disarray and put the Mets back on the map. He said that the Mets would be rebuilt and taken seriously, and he gave us his five year plan that would make the Mets significant again, competitive, a contender and so much more. Wow, what a vision… I [...]
According to a new entry on Bart Hubbuch’s Mets blog for the NY Post, Mets minor league players were not the only ones subjected to the mad ravings of Mets VP Tony Bernazard. Bart Hubbuch writes, It turns out that ripping his shirt off and challenging minor-league players to fight him isn’t even Tony Bernazard’s most recent incident of outrageous, hot-headed conduct. New York Mets All-Star closer Frankie Rodriguez confirmed this afternoon that he exchanged words on [...]
That was the statement the New York Mets released today regarding the firestorm surrounding a report that Joe posted earlier today regarding Mets VP of Player Development. Who do the Mets think they are fooling? They knew about these incidents long before they leaked out thanks in great part to the investigative efforts of Adam Rubin of the Daily News. They had this information in their hands since prior to the All Star break, but [...]
Welcome, class. Today we will discuss whether the Mets should become buyers or sellers at next week’s trade deadline. We will consider every option before making our final decision. We will look at the standings in the National League East and the Wild Card race and we will look at which players might be made available for trading purposes. We will also look at which players the Mets might be willing to part with should [...]
Yesterday on his twitter Sports Illustrated’s Jon Heyman posted the following: “minaya, manuel have been told by mets boss jeff wilpon they wont be fired over this painful season.” This organization continues to amaze me. The past 2 seasons have ended with the Mets missing the post season by 1 game, losing that important 1 game the last day of the season. The Wilpons decide before the Madoff scandal broke that they want a lower [...]
To sell, or not to sell. That is the question. However, the answer is not as easy as you might think. If the Mets become sellers, then Omar Minaya will be rubber stamping this season which was engineered by him, as a failure. If the Mets become buyers, and they still don’t make it, then the fans will be rubber stamping Omar Minaya as a failure. What a choice huh? Newsday’s David Lennon is doing [...]
For the first time in six years, the Mets began the second half of the season with a loss, falling a season-low 7 1/2 games behind the division leading Phillies. As if that wasn’t enough, last night the Mets were handed their second straight loss after the break, their eighth shutout of the season, and their fourth shutout in the last nine games. Oh, did I mention that they broke their own season-low record from just [...]
