Tony Bernazard fired by Mets

UPDATE 6:50 P.M.: The press conference apparently took a weird turn with Omar Minaya calling out the reporter who broke the story, Adam Rubin. I haven’t had time to see the video yet (I’m covering the Mariners’ game), but I hear it’s causing an uproar in New York. And Buster Olney of ESPN doesn’t think Minaya will survive. Yikes.

It looks like you can’t get away with ripping off your shirt and challenging a minor-league team to a fight any more. Especially when it’s splashed all over the New York tabloids. Mets exec Tony Bernazard — who interviewed for the Mariners’ GM job last October — has been fired. Here’s an updated story with some quotes from Mets GM Omar Minaya (who interviewed for the Mariners’ GM job when they hired Bill Bavasi).

For a good laugh, check out the New York Daily News cover from last Thursday that’s pictured in the link above. There’s nothing quite like the New York tabloids.
