    Only if the manager or possibly Omar Minaya was fired, would he likely feel good, since his firing put him out of contention for any future managing gigs, as he has the "failed manager" label affixed to his head. It would also show that the players were at fault for the collapse, not Willie.

    Valentine removed that failed label by going to Japan after Steve Phillips canned him awhile back.
    If I recall correctly, Bernazard was the leading voice in getting Willie fired. I would think plain old human nature would cause Willie to have a little satisfaction today.

    SNY is trying to get Adam Rubin to talk about the accusations Minaya made towards him.

    The Mets organization should be embarassed and ashamed.

    If hollywood wrote a worst case scenario script for this year for that team, they have surpassed it.

    Admittedly I don't follow the Mets all that closely but it seems to me like it's a different manager but the same old song. The fault generally always lies within the players.

    Can this organization do anything right?

    Yeah, he didn't sound convincing to me. Like most things, the truth is probably somewhere in between.

    Re: The New York Mets Thread

    Adam Rubin was livid during the press conference and afterwards. He did say though, that all he ever did was ask Omar how to go about getting a job in MLB, which is a far cry from actually lobbying for one. Besides, like one of the SNY reporters said, was Adam Rubin actually looking to be named VP of Player Development without any baseball experience whatsoever? This whole thing is getting more bizarre by the moment.

    I think the guy was interested in a job at some point, but clearly still wrote an accurate story since Tony Bernazard was fired, and wasn't a good person. No reason to call him out at all. I doubt a beat writer is ready to be interviewed when he's used to being on the other side.

    wow, the guy is not going to be able to cover the mets anymore.

    I saw some of the video; Omar comes off looking tremendously unprofessional.

    Disgusting job by Minaya. Attempted to destroy Rubin's career and may have effectively destroyed his own instead. Good riddance.

    Re: The New York Mets Thread

    I wonder if there are any Mets fans who actually still defend Omar, as a talent evaluator or as a person..

    Re: The New York Mets Thread

    Rubin just teed off on Minaya & Bernazard live on SNY.

    What a joke of an organization this is.

    Just heard about this from Abraham. That's crazy... is Minaya trying to get fired? Hell, I imagine his job is no fun at this point, and with the money the Mets would have to pay him regardless, he'd be able to live comfortably forever.

    Heyman's right (for once) when suggesting that Minaya wasn't too happy with letting Bernazard go and that it was the Wilpons' call. Can't imagine Minaya being smart enough to let go of a complete tool like Bernie.

    Laughing stock of the sport.

    If they expect us to believe it was Minaya who orchestrated this whole thing, including the Rubin incident, and that Jeff Wilpon had nothing to do with it, they must think we're all naive fools.

    I just tuned in but apparently Minaya is accusing Rubin of smearing Tony B. because Rubin wants Tony B's job.
    I can't believe I missed it. Is there a link anywhere yet?
