Reader Brian is watching the press conference:
For those unable to watch the press conference, this is completely amazing. Adam Rubin of the Daily News did most of the reporting on Bernazard and Minaya just said that Rubin has lobbied in the past for a job with the Mets in player development.
So they have a split camera on Rubin while Minaya is talking and he’s practically shaking he’s so angry. And when he asked if Minaya was implying that Rubin had a personal stake in this, Minaya hemmed and hawed as he does.
This whole press conference is insane.
Does Omar not read the papers? Does he not realize that throwing such a thing out there — even if true — is going to inspire about 12 attacks a day? Is this the GM’s equivalent of suicide-by-cop?
UPDATE: Here’s the psycho press conference in question.
