Poor Ol' Tony

The 'Ropolitans reports, Tony Bernazard fights Double-A Binghamton players, without his shirt. This is one for the ages. A source tells the Daily News that Mets VP Tony Bernazard attempted to fight players from the Double-A Binghamton Mets, and removed his shirt in the process.

It’s so weird I can’t even process this, so I’ll leave it to Adam Rubin to fill you in.

Bernazard particularly went after middle infield prospect Jose Coronado, using a slang term associated with a woman's anatomy, a source indicated. The confrontation happened about 10 days before the All-Star break, according to insiders.


GM Omar Minaya acknowledged Bernazard spoke to the B-Mets in a "stern voice," but said he had no knowledge of the scope being portrayed.

"I know he did have a team meeting with them," Minaya told the Daily News. "It was not a 'you-guys-have-been-great meeting.' I know he 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."


Rubin goes on to note that Bernazard recently verbally attacked his deputy during a recent game at Citi Field.

For the whole story, head over to the Daily News. Prepare to shake your head in disbelief and mutter things to yourself about Bernazard and the Mets.

...Was he trying to motivate or get more players injured?...

This amazes me. If he isn't fired, something is very, very wrong.

Why does this story, which I couldn't care less about, have to be true; while the Roy Halladay trade is rumored to be false...?
