To bad to see him go. He's a great manager, a great guy. The mets totally 100% f*cked up with the way they handled that. take a guy out to f*ckin california for a day, then tell him he's fired at midnight. Willie is a class act and he didnt deserve that. Although i felt it was a move that had to be made, this was the worst possible way it could have went down.
On the other hand, Jerry Manuel seems like a good manager. At first i thouhgt it would make absolutley no difference at all because he has pretty much the same exact personality as willie. But after the press conference yesterday, he's got a different view on many things then willie had. I dont think he's as layed back as willie. I think thats what really killed willie. His layed back personality. It's hard to be conservative in NY.
