In a previous post, this blog posed the question of which news would come first: the Omar Minaya apology or the news on John Maine’s condition. Well, the answer is in and it’s the general manager’s apology to The Daily News reporter Adam Rubin.
Minaya made the apology yesterday not only to Rubin but also to the team’s ownership and fans. He said it was out of character for him and it came about because of the tough task of firing his friend Tony Bernazard. He said he was also sorry about making the statements in such a public forum.
Now that he’s made his apology, perhaps Mets management, players, fans, Rubin and Minaya himself can move on. I’m already tired of this story. Let’s focus on the resurgent Mets and their bid for the Wild Card. The only off-the-field distrations should be whom the Mets acquire and when injured players are coming back. Who’s with me?
