Mets general manager Omar Minaya says he apologized to a beat
reporter for his critical comments during a bizarre news conference.
Minaya says he met with New York Daily News reporter Adam Rubin on
Wednesday. But the GM was unclear when asked Thursday if he stood by
his statements that questioned Rubin’s motives and credibility for a
series of articles about former player development executive Tony
Bernazard . . . Minaya says he thinks Rubin accepted his apology.
I’d say it sounds like one of those “I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings”
non-apologies, but those at least require calculation, and if Minaya
did much calculating before determining a course of action, he never
would have said what he said beforehand.
Or traded for Jeff Francoeur.
Or signed Oliver Perez to an extension.
