Minaya Left with Nowhere to Hide

July 30, 2009

If there’s one thing we can learn from this season so far, it’s that the Mets are indeed an open book. The latest saga involving Mets GM Omar Minaya can attest to that. Before we go lobbying for Minaya’s dismissal, we should realize that the Mets beleaguered GM has provided us with a very valuable lesson: transparency. Throughout this season, Minaya has always looked at the glass half-full. With all the ups and downs, he has confidently defended those aspects of his organization that have been met with the most criticism.

Unfortunately, given the unpleasant task of having to fire one of his closest colleagues in Tony Bernazard, the solid foundation that Minaya helped build was made to collapse right before his eyes. Having to address a band of smug reporters and beat writers patting each other on the back for a job well done might have put Minaya on the defensive. Perhaps it was at that point that all those two-cent explanations and flimsy excuses concerning the state of a wounded ball club finally came to light. Whichever side of the fence Minaya ends up on when all the drama subsides, he will be a better man from it.

Listening to Jerry Manuel’s response towards the recent back page headlines concerning his ball club, you can see that the Mets manager has already turned the page.

“It’s kind of entertaining,” Manuel said.

Manuel is just a temporary stop on an on-going train. Those who have a larger stake in the Mets such as Jeff Wilpon, the organization’s chief operating officer, find these types of circumstances quite embarrassing. Hopefully, Mets fans will be allowed to expect nothing less than the real scoop from here on out.

    Wow. I never thought I’d read something this well thought out about the current fracas. Thanks for putting it in perspective.

    Thanks for the comment. The amazing thing is the Mets have been winning throughout this whole ordeal. Perhaps Tony Bernazard was a detriment to the ball club.
