Minaya’s verbal steel chair shot leads to unprecedented alliance


Not since September 23, 1987, has the sports world seen such an unprecedented and unpredictable alliance.  Yes, mark it down.  July 28, 2009.  The day the New York Post extended its hand out to their arch rival, the New York Daily News, much like the Hulkster coming to the aid of an outnumbered and severely beaten "Macho Man" Randy Savage, with Omar Minaya playing the part of the Honky Tonk Man and the Wilpons as the morally deprived Hart Foundation.

Whatever ulterior motives Minaya may have been wishing upon a writer who had asked members of several organizations about potential career entry into baseball, hadn't the GM admitted to already knowing Mets' HR department had been investigating Bernazard's behavior of the kinds described by Rubin?

Bernazard was fired yesterday for that behavior.  So the only motivation in questioning Rubin's motives was not to explain a delay in a due process out of Minaya's hands, but to deflect the GM's own ineptitude, as reflected in every rambling, contradictory thought he utters.

Although he couldn?t resist saying this:

Asked twice, Minaya couldn't offer what would have been a proper forum. Nor did he explain why he had attacked Rubin, who should have restricted career inquiries to persons in organizations other than the one he covers, both because that would have eliminated potential questions of impropriety and because he should have known whom he is dealing with.

On Monday his (Minaya?s) inability to remain in control of his thoughts led to a gaffe that could lead to unemployment.  He turned the firing of Tony Bernazard into an attempted firing squad for a reporter from the Daily News.

Witness Hogan's courage for yourselves folks, and that too of Bobby Heenan, who was still willing to announce the historic match despite a woman, Miss Elizabeth, being allowed anywhere near his sanctuary, otherwise known as a wrestling ring:
