Bernazard Firing Part Deux
In case you missed it, the Mets held a press conference moments before game time tonight to address Omar Minaya’s attack on Adam Rubin.
I’m not 100% sure, but I believe the Mets are the first franchise in sports history to call a press conference to explain a press conference. Someone check with the Elias Sports Bureau to confirm, please.
During the second press conference, Minaya apologized for isolating and attacking Rubin in the first press conference. He did not, however, apologize for what he said; rather, he apologized for saying what he did, WHEN he did and WHERE he did. He stands by the inane accusation that Rubin sought a job in the Mets’ front office. As if it matters. And as if anyone would want to work in that Chinese fire drill of an organization (no offense to my friends of Chinese descent).
Furthermore, Jeff Wilpon made it clear that Tony Bernazard was a good friend, and that Omar “fostered” that friendship. Again, it matters why?
After listening to Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum in this absurd press conference, Jerry Manuel’s postgame interview will resemble a symposium conducted by Albert Einstein.
One can only wonder what this Mickey Mouse operation will do next.
