Mets fire Bernazard; Omar calls out writer

Posted: July 27, 2009 in Mets

The Mets can’t even get a simple firing right. They did the right thing today and got rid of Vice President of Player Development Tony Bernazard, whose alleged outbursts have been in all the NY papers over the last week. The guy has been viewed as a loose cannon for awhile now, it seems, and with the Mets’ minor league system underperforming anyway, it became easy to get rid of the guy. However, the interesting part came in today’s press conference. I only read about this, but I can’t wait to see what happened. Apparently, Minaya called out Daily News writer Adam Rubin, the guy who broke the Bernazard story, saying Rubin was lobbying for a job in the Mets’ player development department. There may be an element of truth here, but it was pretty stupid for Omar to bring it up at a press conference, as he was implying Rubin wanted to get Bernazard fired. This incensed Rubin and the two got into some kind of verbal sparring match. Unbelievable. The soap opera continues.

    I missed the press conference, but those who were able to watch it live uninterrupted or unedited as it unfolded universally described it as ‘must see tv.’

    I am glad that as the off field Mets start to embarrass me, the on field Mets are at last not.
