    He’s right a shitty team. Wilpon is caught up with Madoff cronnyism. He got caught. And the rules to any illegal scheme or hustle is not to get caught. He has a hole in his pocket now. When the curtin is closing. You can and will say anything. I think of how father and son Wilpon did in Willie Randolph. I have no problem firing him. Managers get hired and fired. But Wilpon kept his “go fer” “Tony” in the locker room to cause tensions between Willie and the Spanish players. This act undermined Willie’s authority and gave never ending stress. So it eventually backfired. And Wilpon got rid of “Tony” shortly after firing Randolph. And then the Madoff money scheme unfolded. So sit back and let him talk!

    He should have never made those comments about current players. I think they are stressed with this financial situation. Bad timing.

    You can say that again. Under no circumstances should an owner go after his team like that

    Terrible choice of words by Wilpon. Those words should have never reached the public even if he thought that. You keep those thoughts to yourself.

    Wilpon is a complete immature and unproffesional owner for those words bottom line!
