    Bernanzard’s shirt is off, so we know this is definitely an authentic picture.

    He’s also wildly swinging and missing, which is akin to his prospect analysis.

    Mets a mess, and Mariners’ GM candidate in the middle of it

    Posted by Larry Stone

    Last October, Mets’ Tony Bernazard was one of eight people to interview for the Mariners’ GM job that went to Jack Zduriencik. A former Mariner player, Bernazard wasn’t one of the four candidates asked back for a second interivew (those were Zduriencik, Kim Ng of the Dodgers, Tony LaCava of the Blue Jays and Jerry DiPoto of the Diamondbacks).

    I bring this up because Bernazard finds himself today splashed in the middle of the New York tabloids. And it’s not a place he want to be, not with the Mets already in midst of a collapse that has put the jobs of GM Omar Minaya and manager Jerry Manuel on the chopping block.

    Bernazard, the Mets’ VP of minor league operations, supposedly lost his cool while addressing the Mets’ Binghampton Class AA farm team, ripped off his shirt in the clubhouse and challenged the team to a fight after a game. That’s after a reported recent incident in which Bernazard supposedly berated a Mets underling with a profanity-laced tirade in the stands at Citi Field.

    I don’t know what kind of GM Bernazard would have been, but it sounds like he’s definitely got issues in New York.

    Omar has no guts. Tony should have been fired
    already. Mets have no class. If a Yankee person did this do you tyhink they would have been fired by now? Everything the Mets have done from making their new staduim look like the old Dodger staduim to Jackie Robinson shows the owners have no good intentions when it comes to the Mets.
    The old Dodgers only won once and that is good?
    It should have been Gil Hodges a tie in from the Dodgers and the Mets of 1969. Wilpons have to sell!
