UPDATE: Well, we have an update now: Michael S. Schmidt of the New York times reports that Mets clubhouse manager Charlie Samuels was suspended — and will likely be fired — because he has been tied to a federal investigation into illegal gambling. The gambling involves football, naturally. And you thought the only crime that happened in that clubhouse was father-in-law assault.
No other details are provided. Including the details of how Schmidt gets so many federal lawyers to talk to him about ongoing investigations. Seriously, he’s The Man when it comes to that stuff.
4:01 P.M.: I’m not sure why this has been picked up by every news outlet out there, but it has:
Longtime Mets equipment/clubhouse manager Charlie Samuels has been suspended by the organization, the Mets confirmed. The organization offered no elaboration beyond the following statement: “Last Wednesday, the Mets suspended Charlie Samuels indefinitely without pay. As this is an ongoing personnel matter, we have no further comment.”
Samuels has held the job for 27 years.
