Yeah, I'm not too concerned about some of Sandy's people not liking this move. I think thats sort of the idea.

This. But let's not forget that Sandy's extension came first. This might be a shot fired over the bow but Sandy is still calling the shots. I don't see how bringing in a proven talent guy hurts. I don't particularly care if it's going to ruffle any feathers. Feather ruffling is exactly what's needed here.

Yes, what the Mets need is more feather ruffling and disfunction. That’s exactly what they need....

Yikes. Carig claims the "entire FO" is upset about this move

MarcCarig: Fred Wilpon owns the Mets. It’s obviously his prerogative to hire who he wants. But what are the chances that he actually addresses why he’s made a controversial move that has angered people currently working for him? The answer: slim to none.


Carig is going to be fun to read this season.

I’m sure Jeff Scott is thrilled about this move...

Curious, who sets what Omar’s role is? Sandy or Fred? Because to me it sounds like Omar’s role is to be more of an ownership stooge and spy then talent evaluator.

Isn't the ownership stooge role already filled?

1. Sandy extension.
2. Ignore FO concerns and hire Omar.

Does this mean that the Wilpons are not trusting Sandy to take the hit on PR?
