The Kiss Of Death?
In Ken Davidoff's Baseball Insider , he quotes an article from
Mike Puma - NY Post , where Fred Wilpon came out of his self imposed seclusion and declared that Omar Minaya will be back for the 2010 season.
Wilpon, who agreed to answer only one question, was asked by Puma if Omar Minaya would be back in 2010. Wilpon reponded, "Am I going to bring Omar back next year? Absolutely. That's a fact."
Just ask Willie Randolph what an endorsement of 'being safe' is.
When these comments were presented to Omar Minaya, Omar said, "Jerry is my guy. We work well together."
Hmmm. Let's see, the Mets collapsed last year, they are nine games under .500, Omar had a horrific case of "Hoof In Mouth Disease" in the whole Tony Bernazard fiasco by fingering NY Daily News reporter Adam Rubin (Read Here).
Jerry was way out of line in his handling of Ryan Church, especially in his "toughness" in regards to Church's concussions last year.
Well, I guess they're on the same page...
