Mutts Stage Monday Midnight Massacre [Update]

Absolutely Classless Bastards

The Mets have fired manager Willie Randolph, pitching coach Rick Peterson and first base coach Tom Nieto, the team announced shortly after 3 a.m. Eastern time Tuesday.

Bench coach Jerry Manuel has been named the team’s interim manager, while Ken Oberkfell, Dan Warthen and Luis Aguayo will join the staff.

Omar Minaya is the biggest douchebag in NY sports. He knew he was going to fire Willie and those coaches before they ever got on the plane to LA. What the hell was the point of having these guys fly out to the West Coast and then fire them? Are you THAT afraid of the NY beat writers that you had to be 3000 miles away before you felt comfortable making this move?

Hey, Omar? Do you really think this new regime is gonna change anything? Will their presence suddenly make that idiot Billy Wagner not blow saves? Will a new pitching coach suddenly make Pedro young again? You’ve made an art of signing washed up Hispanic players at the tail end of their careers and now you want to blame their failure on Willie?

You’re a prick, Minaya, a goddamn prick for doing it like this. Willie Randolph–a bonafide, Brooklyn born baseball hero in this town, and has the World Series rings to prove it–deserved better than to be treated like this by some punk like you. You built this team, you asshole bastard. If the Wilpons had any friggin’ sense it would have been your head that got chopped.

DIAF, you cocksucking punk fuck.

UPDATE: Newsday: COWARDS!

ESPN/OLNEY: RANDOLPH VICTIM OF METS’ CIRCUS

VACC:

They need to be humiliated.

What a crowd, these bums are, all of them, from the Wilpons at the top to Omar Minaya down below, all of them who conspired to botch this firing worse than any firing has ever been botched. Ever. You wouldn’t trust these guys to run a 7-11, let alone a National League baseball team. What a joke. What a cowardly, dastardly joke.

A midnight massacre.

A 3 a.m. thrashing.

Disgraceful. Utterly, completely, disgraceful.

And here’s the ridiculous part: They could have gone through the transaction of what they did – firing Randolph, firing Rick Peterson, firing Tom Nieto, elevating Jerry Manuel and Ken Oberkfell and Luis Aguayo and Dan Warthen, at any time across the past few weeks and they would have been perfectly justified.

Hell, if they wanted to raze the whole staff last October, after the epic collapse of September, that would have been all right, too. You may not have agreed with it (although a loud segment of Mets fans surely would have). But that would have simply been a baseball decision. And the baseball was enough to warrant it.

This? This is unspeakable. These men couldn’t have been fired in New York, before heading on a plane and flying 3,000 miles to their doom? They couldn’t have been spared the ignominy of a public perp walk back east, their dignity thrown into their carry-on luggage?
