A few nuggets as I pray my roof doesn’t leak tonight, it may be a long, long night on Staten Island:
ITEM: OMAR MINAYA WILL BE FIRED ON MONDAY
Says who? Says Matt Pignataro of 7 Train To Shea that’s who. Matt’s source tell him that Minaya will be relived of his GM duties and WIL NOT be reassigned in the organization. It’s the only move to make. Just pay him and wish him well we’ve got rebuilding to do around here. By the way, Matt will be my guest this Tuesday night Oct 5th at 10PM ET on THIS CALL TO THE BULLPEN on BLOG TALK RADIO.
ITEM: WHO STAYS WHO GOES ?
Adam Rubin on ESPNNewYork has a Take ‘Em or Trash ‘Em poll on the website. Some of the more interesting results are 58 % of the voters say to Trash Carlos Beltran. I’m sure the organization would love to move him but how much of his contract would the Mets eat to get Beltran out of town? It will be tough enough to move Beltran due to his salary but now with this lastest flare up with his knee, it could be near impossible. I love how the Mets and Beltran are talking up the fact that the MRI on his knee show that it’s just inflammation and that his knee has healed nicely since the surgery. It seems to me the only thing Mets management and Beltran agree on is they both hate each others guts.
97% say Trash Luis Castillo, my question is who are the 3 % who voted to keep him? Same with the 2% out of 100 % who say keep Oliver Perez.
93 % say David Wright needs t stay and 77 % think Jason Bay will rebound in 2011. The voters also overwhelmingly want The Skill Sets, Omar, and Manuel out of here with a huge negative vote. Oh boy is this going to be one helluva winter!
ITEM: TIKI BARBER NEEDS TO BE PUNCHED IN THE FACE
Yeah I know it’s not Mets related but this bugs the living shit out of me. I despise Tiki Barber, always have while he played for the G-Men as he always came off as a selfish “Me-First” prick and I do not feel he belongs in the NY Giants Ring of Honor. Seems Barber could not take the high road when promoting the unveiling on Sunday night of the Ring of Honor as Big Mouth Tiki trashed Coach Tom Coughlin saying he was losing the team and that Coughlin has to treat people with more respect. A guy who cheated on his pregnant wife giving advise on treating people with respect, WOW what an A-1 scumbag.
