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.
