Jeff Wilpon And Rob Manfred Shouldn’t Speak

This is going to come across as extremely hypocritical, but neither Jeff Wilpon or Rob Manfred should be allowed to speak ever again.

Wilpon did an interview with Steve Serby of the New York Post, and he gave little to no insight in things he’s done to plague the team, and he wasn’t pressed on anything. But hey, he tells us Mets fans are nice and supportive of him.

Manfred did an interview with Karl Ravech of ESPN, and in that interview he confirmed everyone’s worst suspicions that he’s a feckless mouthpiece for the owners, and at the end of the day, he’s overmatched for this job.

Yes, people like Wilpon and Manfred should have to explain themselves and their consistently poor and suspect decision making. They didn’t do it now, and really, they just raise more questions about their complete inability to lead. That’s probably why MLB Network had the foresight to show Bull Durham instead of airing this interview. Hopefully, interviews like this would be a signal these two are unfit to lead.

Sadly, it won’t, and these interviews only continue to prove Mets fans are in the worst of hands, and really, nothing is going to change anytime soon.

    I totally agree. How do idiots like these two get as far as they do? Obviously nepotism and cronyism are alive and well in MLB.

    Additionally. You’re Robby Cano, the GMs guy, who is supposed to be a leader and you dont show up in camp until the night before the reporting deadline? I’m not just disappointed in him I’m back to where I started on him. Hes a laggard and not the kind of leader this team needs.

    I’m sure he has a million BS reasons. But I have a prediction. If you think last year was bad, just wait till you see this year. Anyone here old enough to remember the end of George Foster? If he gets off badly that’s where this thing is going.

    Another Bonilla in the making…not to forget Lowerie…I can see it already..Lowerie and Cano…damn GM.

  3. Pal88 says:

    Lowerie shows up in a leg cast..Cano arrives the night before…that shows veteran team spirit…what an example.

      Lowrie is saddening news.

      Robbie….sheet guys, he is a HoFer. The stories all winter have been he is working on his legs and getting ready. The guy has been getting himself ready for seasons for 20 years. He doesn’t have to show up early to make the bloggers happy. He showed up on time.

      Cano hit .338 with a 1.009 OPS after August last year. He is in position to have a great year.

      1. metsdaddy says:

        Over his final 15 games, Cano had a .683 OPS, and for the season, he had a .736

        1. Oldbackstop says:

          You are doing your cherry picking thing again. My stats were Aug. 1 on. 1.009 OPS.

          1. metsdaddy says:

            Going from August 1 on was cherry picking in and of itself

  4. Oldbackstop says:

    What’s the point here? To establish if Cano can still play at an elite level? In the first ten games in August he went 17 for 33: 515/.541/.939/1.480

    Did any Mets batter have a better streak all year? I suggest you look at JD Davis, maybe. Better yet, tell me the last time any Met had a ten game streak like that? Sheet…that could be a franchise record.

    Did Kelenic have a streak like that in rookie ball last year against the 150 pound virgins he batted against?

    1. metsdaddy says:

      I’m sure Kelenic had some sub .400 OPS stretches like Cano did.
