I cannot defend the way the Mets handled Willie, who I did not want to see fired. But after the way the Yankees treated Torre last fall, Yankee fans have no right to talk about the Mets right now.

BUt what do I know, I root for a team that plays in a league that needs to 'join the 21st century'...
still disagree with you hugely, so i will keep my rights to talk about firing someone after the team won 3 out of 4...

and really, it wasn't that big of a slap in the face....when you are the yankees, your goal is a championship, not the playoffs.....and i can't remember but didn't winning a championship bring his pay past his last year here?
