Everyone is wondering if this disappointing season will be the last go-around for Omar Minaya as the Mets’ general manager. Owner Fred Wilpon says that it’s an absolute certainty:
Wilpon, in East Hartford, Conn., to help announce a new partnership
between SNY and UConn athletics, brushed aside reporters’ inquiries
about his floundering Mets. But as Wilpon walked away, a Post reporter
asked if Minaya would remain the team’s GM beyond this year.
“Is the sun going to come up tomorrow?” Wilpon answered.
Of course it would explain a hell of a lot more about the state of the Mets if that question wasn’t rhetorical and Wilpon simply didn’t know.
UPDATE: Matthew Cerrone — who knows more about the inner-workings of the Mets than I’ll ever know — doesn’t think we should read too much into this.
