Mets fire Tony Bernazard
According to the New York Daily News, the Mets have fired controversial VP of Player Development Tony Bernazard. A press conference was held at Citi Field Monday, where Omar Minaya announced the firing. Bernazard found himself under the microscope after recent flare-ups where he allegedly challenged the Binghamton Mets to a fight, cursed out a Mets official over a seating dispute at Citi Field, and had to be separated from Francisco Rodriguez on the team bus after an 11-0 loss to the Braves. Bernazard played 10 seasons in the Majors, as well as 3 in Japan. He had held his current position since December, 2004.
