The most relevant item about the Mets team, clubhouse or lack therein was noted again today by Marty Noble on XM. (Bill Madden reported it last year). A rat-infested culture was imposed on the Mets team and their fans:
- Noble: Tony Bernazard told many people internally last year that he wanted a new manager and wanted it to be Manny Acta. Word obviously got around to Noble and many others. Since Bernazard has continued his role there, ownership approves.
Why wouldn't any Met player get out of this living cancer as fast as possible? No one, including Willie Randolph could have any positive influence in this environment. The joke is, he did straighten out that team when he got there.
