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.
