DateQuestionAnswer
2019-05-20 12:00:00 (link to chat)So is Mickey fired before or after tonight's game?
(jcoan59 from Jersey Shore)
Iím just excited to see if the Mets can make more of a hash of this than the Art Howe and Willie Randolph firings. I will not bet against them ever. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-09-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Who leaked the information in the story and why? This is Dolan-esque dysfunction (maybe it always has been).
(Lougle from Queens)
It always has been. This happened with Art Howe, R.A. Dickey, Cespedes, Ike Davis, Justin Turner, Wally Backman, Luis Castillo, Jose Reyes (the first time). Probably another dozen guys I'm forgetting.

They leaked it to basically give Fred no choice but to sign off. Poisoned the well. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
