Gotham Nation: Are The Wilpons Crying Wolf In Remaking The Mets?

This week, this little gem found itself in the Daily News:

Toughness: The Mets are looking for an executive who will stand up to players, and shrug off criticism from the New York media. There is a perception among some major league executives that in recent years Mets players have become accustomed to getting their way too often.

Really?  Well, maybe if the writer who covers the Mets for the Daily News these days had actually been around for the last 10 years or so (or maybe did a little research) he’d know that the current mishmosh of what the Mets call a chain of command exists because Fred and Jeff Wilpon have allowed that to be the case.
