“I know the perception out there again is that ownership said no,” Wilpons said today in an interview at Citi Field. “I don’t have the opportunity to say no because Omar hasn’t’t brought it to me as an option. Omar and the baseball staff aren’t interested.”
This is exactly what’s wrong with the management of this team. They twist reality until it chokes to death and then tries to sell it on a fan base that’s clearly 2 steps ahead of them at all times.
Really, first of all I heard with my own two ears Omar tell WFAN “ask ownership” when asked if he had the payroll flexibility to get Manny after saying he loved the Manny’s bat. So Jeff is telling us that Omar thinks Tatis is better than Manny Ramirez.
OOOOOOOOOOoooooorrrr maybe Jeff & Fred told Omar he has 10 million more to spend and you can do what you like with it. We’re short two pitchers, so obviously he can’t pick up Manny. Tim Redding is obviously our 5th starter… because Omar thinks it’s a good idea or because there’s no more money???? Really Jeff, we’re not stupid. How is the baseball staff not interested the best right handed hitter in baseball? Sure…
