Apparently the Mets are not content to only embarrass themselves on the field, they need to do it off the field as well. According to the Daily News, VP for Player Development Tony Bernazard challenged the Binghamton Mets to a fight and called one player “a slang term associated with a woman’s anatomy.” At least Bernazard had the sense to take his shirt off first, no sense getting that ripped. Mets GM Omar Minaya told the News that Bernazard "spoke to them in a stern voice. But as far as what he was wearing, what kind of shoes he was wearing, I don't know anything about that." It's believed that underage drinking and the poor play by the B-Mets (they're 37-58 and in last place in the Northern Division) were causes for the "stern" talk. While it has been reported that Minaya and manager Jerry Manuel are safe for the season, one has to wonder if this will be the end for Bernazard. Challenging the players to fight is bad, but the lack of prospects in the farm system is worse.
