It could have been done last Sunday, after one of the most deflating 4-game sweeps in recent memory.
It could have been done on a sunny afternoon last September after a certain toothless future-hall-of-famer shit the bed.
Instead, it was done in the middle of the night three time zones away while you and I were sleeping and once again the media knew about it before the team.
Instead of learning from the Art Howe debacle, among others, the Mets organization destroyed any credibility it had left. What was the purpose of sending the entire staff on a cross-country flight - the night after a doubleheader, mind you - to axe them the next morning after a win?
I've wanted Willie out for a long time - but this organization is a joke. How do you explain making the biggest decision in years when 90% of your fan base is counting sheep? The mismanagement and laughable decision making that goes on within this ball club has reached new heights.
Midnight firings? Minaya still having a job? I'd say the rest of baseball is laughing at the Mets, but I really think there's just one huge collective cringe going on at this point. Ladies and gentlemen, your 2008 New York Mets! What a fucking joke.
